LLM International Corporate Governance and Financial Regulation

What makes our LLM in International Corporate Governance and Financial Regulation special?

On our LLM in International Corporate Governance and Financial Regulation (ICGFR), you will have an opportunity to undertake in-depth comparative and contextual study of the regulation of the company.

During the course you will look at the various ways in which different jurisdictions respond to similar economic and social pressures, examining key topics in the post financial crisis era. It will allow you to develop an understanding of the interaction between the process of globalisation and general principles and theories of corporate governance and financial regulation.

Not only will you study the main topics in corporate governance and financial law and regulation, including compliance dimensions but you will also learn to appreciate the economic and social context in which commercial decisions are made and corporate governance and financial regulation operate with reference to historical developments.

This LLM is distinctive because :

  • It has been designed by widely recognised subject experts, who also provide training for the staff of the Bank of England
  • It provides students with the opportunity to study corporate governance and financial regulation together
  • Classes are relatively small allowing for intense discussion and plenty of opportunity for feedback by academics
  • Modules are drawing on expertise of top legal practitioners in curriculum design and delivery

What will I study?

You will take our core study modules to give you a firm grounding in the subject as well as legal research and writing skills, along with two optional modules in term one and three optional modules in term two. You will undertake a dissertation in term three.
