Course Summary

The breadth and depth of study and the demands of independent research make the undertaking of a specialised LLM distinct from the undergraduate study of law.

Part of our comprehensive range of LLM programmes, 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.

Diverse choice of modules

Pursuing an LLM allows you to focus in on a particular area of law by delving deep into the subject and undertaking independent research and learning. The modules available cover a diverse range of legal topics, making it possible to tailor the course towards the specific areas of law you wish to explore further.

Teaching backed by the latest research

The School has a thriving research culture and most tutors on our LLMs are active researchers, publishing in leading journals. At the same time, the quality of teaching at Bristol Law School has been recognised by the Quality Assurance Agency as 'excellent'. You can therefore expect to participate in carefully-planned, lively and highly informative sessions designed to give you a deep and thorough grounding in your chosen area of law.

Flexible study options

There are two intakes to the LLMs, one in September and one in January, and you can study with us full or part time.

Careers / Further study

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.

Our award-winning careers service helps you develop your employment potential through career coaching, a vacancy service for internships, placements, jobs, global opportunities, volunteering and community activity plus support for entrepreneurial activity, and access to employer events.

Students can exit with PGDip and PGCert awards.
