Course Summary

The LLM in International Banking and Finance Law offers you a pathway to specialise in law relating to the global finance and banking sectors. You will study integral parts of the international banking and financial system, and be encouraged to think critically about fundamental issues, such as the importance of effective financial regulation, the impact of the credit crunch, the necessity for corporate social responsibility and the increasing significance of ethical banking. The in-depth nature of the course will prepare you well for working in either legal practice or commercial organisations. Studying for an LLM provides an ideal opportunity to develop specialist skills that will be favoured by employers, both in the legal world and beyond. It opens up a range of career opportunities and gives our students the edge over other graduates.

The in-depth knowledge you will acquire in a particular area of law will give you a thorough grounding in the subject area and raise your employability prospects, enabling you to become a specialist within your organisation. It is for this reason that many of our LLM graduates choose to go on to complete a PhD or go into teaching and research. Recent graduates from Bristol Law School have gained positions in local government, solicitors firms, the Ministry of Defence and other organisations including Marks and Spencer plc, Direct Line and Lloyds TSB. Students can exit with PGCert and PGDip awards.
