About International Financial Law at Nottingham Trent University

About LLM International Financial Law

Our new LLM International Financial Law course has been designed to respond to the rapid growth in the development of the law in international finance and to equip students for future careers in the financial sectors.

The course not only focuses on financial transactions and banking, but also insurance, which is a huge industry in both the UK and internationally.

Why choose this course?

  • Fulfil the growing demand for appropriately qualified international financial law specialists within and beyond the legal profession.
  • A variety of Scholarships are available.
  • Ideal for students looking for employment in the wider field of financial law.
  • Gain an understanding of the wider factors that may have influenced the area of international financial law such as theoretical, ethical, political, economic, and sociological factors.
  • Benefit from a faculty providing forward-thinking teaching in the field.
  • Optional wide-ranging modules allow students to tailor their degree to their interests.
  • Attend an International Summer School and explore Law from a European perspective.
  • 98% of our postgraduate Law School students are employed or engaged in further study six months after graduating (DLHE, postgraduate leavers 2015-16).

How you're taught

The academic year for the LLM courses is split into three parts: two ten-week terms (Term One runs from the beginning of the academic year until the Christmas vacation, Term Two between Christmas and Easter) and the summer period.

Full-time students – who complete the course over one academic year – study three modules in each term and complete the dissertation over the summer.

Seminars are led by academics but will usually require you to carry out extensive guided preparatory work and will often involve short presentations or other contributions.

Lecture Capture

Having listened to student feedback, Nottingham Trent University have implemented a Lecture Capture procedure. Available in all teaching rooms that have a capacity of at least 50 students, significant investments have been made to provide our students with this audio-visual facility on all of our campuses. Where possible, the majority of lectures will be available for our students to access as recordings that are synchronised with presentation slides. This provides students with a great tool for recapping on lectures and revision.

Assessment

In each case modules are assessed through one piece of course work. This usually takes the form of a problem- or essay-style question, but will vary by module. You can submit and receive feedback on assessments over the course of each module.

The dissertation is 18,000 to 20,000 words and is researched and written independently under the guidance of an expert academic.

Expert Teaching Staff

Our courses are taught by academics with significant subject expertise. The School's vocational focus and strong links with the legal profession mean that many of our academic staff members have extensive practical experience. The courses also have a strong research base. Our academic staff actively research and publish, and many are recognised as being among the leading experts in their fields.

Research Expertise

We have a number of internationally recognised experts in a wide range of legal areas. Visit our research page for more information.
