You will then realise how, in today's interconnected world, national and international financial markets have far-reaching effects on virtually all of us around the globe. That is why trading venues and financial institutions such as banks, asset managers and market intermediaries are increasingly regulated. This leads to a growing need for: legal specialists with knowledge of the economic aspects that drive financial transactions; and financial experts who wish to increase their understanding of financial regulations. In the Law & Finance programme, you will be specially trained to work at the intersection of law and finance in this global world.
