    LLM 1 year full-time, 2 years part-time (for home students)

Course Description

On our LLM in International Corporate Governance and Financial Regulation (ICGFR), you will undertake in-depth comparative and contextual study of the regulation and governance of companies. 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, and develop an understanding of the interaction between the process of globalisation and general principles and theories of corporate governance and financial regulation.

What makes our LLM special?

  • It has been designed by widely recognised subject experts, who have also provided training for the staff of the Bank of England
  • It is an opportunity to study corporate governance and financial regulation together and to understand the deep interconnections between these two areas of knowledge
  • Classes are relatively small allowing for intense discussion and plenty of opportunity for feedback by academics
  • The expertise of top legal practitioners is drawn upon in curriculum design and delivery

You 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 corporate decisions are made, as well as the historical and theoretical dimensions of corporate governance and financial regulation.

This LLM is suitable for financial analysts, government financial and competition regulators, compliance officers, company secretaries, and specialised legal practitioners.
