The programme builds on the Institute of Advanced Legal Studies’ existing research expertise in the area of company law, corporate governance, international economic law, financial regulation, law of foreign investment and financial law.
It has been designed to appeal to law graduates as well as those in other disciplines—such as business studies, international relations, and finance and economics—who would like to learn more about the legal side of international economic relations and to develop a specialised understanding of corporate governance concepts and the role of financial regulation in today’s globalised financial markets.
The LLM in International Corporate Governance, Financial Regulation and Economic Law aims to:
Widen students’ knowledge of corporate governance, financial regulation and international and comparative aspects of economic law and financial regulation
Introduce students to the principles and theories that underlie the field and to the role of financial regulation and legal mechanisms in averting and/or managing financial crises
Stimulate broader strategic thinking about the goals of corporate and financial regulation and how it affects business strategy and overarching public policy, with an analysis of the economic and legal principles applied to practical case studies
Address the public policy aspects of financial regulation and corporate governance
Assist students in developing the skills in legal analysis and compliance with laws and regulation required for a dynamic career related to the law, regulation and practice of financial markets, or to the financial services sector
