Course content

The global financial crisis has had a major impact on the way the financial system works. There is an increasing demand for professionals with expertise in international financial law.

Sussex Law School provides an international, stimulating learning environment for you to build on your knowledge. You’ll learn from today’s leading lawyers – our world-leading research underpins our teaching.

Our courses have skills training at their core and you'll be able to approach legal problems logically. And you’ll look at different perspectives and have the opportunity to widen your professional network. You’ll:

  • gain a thorough insight into issues affecting major transactions in global financial markets
  • develop a comprehensive understanding of the financial services industry
  • engage with domestic and international developments from practical, regulatory and policy perspectives on financial law.

We’ll prepare you for your future career. Brighton hosts the headquarters of major international financial corporations and only an hour from London, Europe’s financial capital. This gives you direct access to prospective employers.

We have reviewed all our courses to ensure the best possible learning experience for September, taking account of latest information and advice in relation to COVID-19.
