Course content

Part of our comprehensive range of LLM programmes, the LLM in International Banking and Finance Law offers you a pathway to specialise in law relating to the global finance and banking sectors.

You will study integral parts of the international banking and financial system, and be encouraged to think critically about fundamental issues, such as the importance of effective financial regulation, the impact of the credit crunch, the necessity for corporate social responsibility and the increasing significance of ethical banking. The in-depth nature of the course will prepare you well for working in either legal practice or commercial organisations.

Diverse choice of modules

Pursuing an LLM allows you to focus in on a particular area of law by delving deep into the subject and undertaking independent research and learning. The modules available cover a diverse range of legal topics, making it possible to tailor the course towards the specific areas of law you wish to explore further.

Teaching backed by the latest research

The School has a thriving research culture and most tutors on our LLMs are active researchers, publishing in leading journals. At the same time, the quality of teaching at Bristol Law School has been recognised by the Quality Assurance Agency as 'excellent'. You can therefore expect to participate in carefully-planned, lively and highly informative sessions designed to give you a deep and thorough grounding in your chosen area of law.

Flexible study options

There are two intakes to the LLMs, one in September and one in January, and you can study with us full or part time.
