Summary

This programme is designed to equip students with a general yet comprehensive education in a range of areas within International Banking Law. The course will enable students to master the following important aspects of the discipline: core attributes of a bank (credit institution), different types of banks (retail, commercial, private, etc), regulatory authorities in the UK (FSA, Bank of England and H.M. Treasury); some of the important EU/international banking entities, e.g. ECB, EIB, EBRD, the IMF, Federal Reserve and the World Bank; Authorisation and ‘passporting’ of credit institution activities within the EEA; Capital Adequacy principles/Basel III; the notion of insider trading and the Market Abuse Directive; the supervision of investment firms within the EU and the Markets in Financial Instruments Directive (MiFID); Money Laundering and the three anti-money laundering Directives; Islamic Finance and, lastly, Conflict of Laws in a banking/financial services context. Students will have a wide range of Banking Law options to choose from, and may therefore acquire broad as opposed to specialised knowledge.

Through carefully designed course work and varied teaching approaches, students will acquire the intellectual open-ness, technical expertise and critical thinking abilities that are necessary for effectiveness in a globalising world. The programme will equip students to respond effectively to the wide range of intellectual and professional challenges facing contemporary Banking Lawyers. The LLM in Law & Banking will equip them to deal with both case work and policy making.
