Course Overview

On this course you will undertake in-depth comparative and contextual study of the regulation of a company. 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.

The course allows you to study the main topics in corporate governance and financial law and regulation, including compliance dimensions.

Modules

This module aims to provide students with a conceptual framework to understand and analyse the problems addressed by corporate governance and financial regulation. Whilst the globalisation of institutional investment is to some extent leading to convergence of corporate governance, important national differences remain, both as a matter of law and as a matter of practice. Financial regulation seeks to address the risks and potential social costs arising from the operations of banks and other financial institutions. Throughout the module, we will address the normative question of what the corporate governance and financial regulation regimes should look like and why.
