LLM Law and Finance
The global financial and economic crisis of 2008 has had a huge impact across the world. Financial regulation is now a priority for policymakers and governments. As a result, we’re constantly considering the various legal requirements and constraints when making financial decisions and policies.
This programme brings together the principals of law, policy and accounting. You’ll develop an in-depth understanding of these principles which underpin the financial markets. You’ll also gain a unique perspective on the rapidly changing area of regulation. Increasingly, lawyers and other related professionals are operating in environments that demand an understanding of the financial and accounting principles that underpin how businesses operate.
Studying on this programme will equip you with the knowledge, understanding and analytical skills relevant to working or planning a career in banking and finance with an international focus, including international law firms, banks and businesses, and governmental or non-governmental organisations.
Zi Yang, LLM Law and Finance graduate and current PhD candidate at Strathclyde shares why she chose Strathclyde “Strathclyde encourages critical thinking. Masters courses focus on discussion. During seminars, students have opportunities to share their views based on their cultural background, experience and research. This communication inspires students to understand the world from different angles.”
A Law degree is not a prerequisite for entry to this course. Places are available for entry in September 2019.Contact us:E: firstname.lastname@example.org T: 0141 444 8600
