Course content

This specialised LLM will equip you with expert knowledge in Financial Technology (FinTech) law and regulation.

This Masters will introduce key alternative finance products and services such as mobile payments, crowdfunding, cryptoassets, private digital currencies, stablecoins, decentralized finance and the approaches to central bank digital currencies. These services have been facilitated by technologies such as distributed ledger technology (DLT) blockchain, machine learning and artificial intelligence.

You will also enhance your professional skills, awareness, and ability to locate, interpret, analyse and criticise laws, rules, policies and practices on international financing, financial markets and the impact of technology in the financial services industry.
