More about this course

These courses are designed to develop your practical understanding of important legal principles, detailed regulatory requirements and compliance issues facing the financial services sector.

You’ll have the opportunity critically to explore various areas of financial services law including corporate governance, risk management, complaints and financial crime.

If you are a legal practitioner, these programmes will allow you to specialise in this area of law. The courses are also suitable if you already work in the financial services sector and are looking to understand the legal aspects within the regulation and compliance environment.

At the end of the programme, you’ll understand the influence of European law on financial services, regulation and compliance. You’ll also be able to appreciate the commercial importance of this area of law and evaluate the impact of global and commercial policy issues on this sector.

Your tutors and lecturers will have backgrounds in both academia and legal practice.

These courses are delivered online, so you’ll be able to study from anywhere in the world.

It's also possible for you to study a PG Diploma and a PG Certificate version of this course. These qualifications do not hold the same academic weighting as a Master of Laws degree (LLM), but are still beneficial for people already working in the industry.

As part of the LLM dissertation, you'll be able to research and critically analyse an area of financial services law of your choice. Please note, the dissertation module is only available to LLM students.
