Law, Regulation and the International Financial System, LLM

Study our LLM Law, Regulation and the International Financial System to discover the regulatory framework for international financial systems via legal and financial topics.

Governments, regulators, and the financial industry have made major efforts to promote legal compliance and fair-dealing cultures within the financial sector. This has increased the demand for skilled graduates with knowledge in both law and finance.

Our Master’s in Law, Regulation and the International Financial System is designed to provide a thorough understanding of the issues associated with the financial services sector. You will explore relevant knowledge related to business operations, regulations, and international best practice in this area. You’ll also develop in-depth learning through a major independent research project in a specialist area of your choice.

Successful graduates will be equipped with the specialist knowledge for the legal and financial industry. They will be ideally suited for roles in the legal sectors, financial institutions, public sectors, international institutions or non-governmental organisations, and for pursuing further research.

This course is now closed for international applicants for September 2021. Applications are still open for UK applicants for September 2021.

How you will learn

Covid safe teaching and learning

We are looking forward to welcoming students to our campuses for 2021/22 and we are committed to delivering as much of our teaching, learning and student activity as possible face-to-face and on campus for the 2021/22 academic year. Please note that UK Coronavirus policy continues to adapt to ongoing changes. Our plans may need to change and we may need to move activity online at short notice in response to any changes in Government guidance and Covid safety requirements.

Teaching

In a typical week, learning takes place through a combination of lectures and seminars. You will be able to discuss and develop your understanding of topics covered in lectures in seminar sessions. Contact hours may fall between 9am and 9pm, depending on your elective modules and seminars.

Class sizes

Lectures usually are attended by larger groups and seminars/tutorials by smaller groups. This can vary more widely for modules that are shared between degrees.

Independent learning

Outside of timetabled sessions, you will need to dedicate time to self-study to prepare for coursework and presentations. Our Stockwell Street Library and online resources will support your further reading and research.

Overall workload

Your overall workload consists of contact hours (lectures and seminars), independent learning, and assessments. For full-time students, the workload should be roughly equivalent to a full-time job. For part-time students, this will reduce in proportion with the number of modules you are studying.

Assessment

On this course, students are assessed by essays and a dissertation.

Feedback summary

We aim to give feedback on assignments within 15 working days.
