About the Course

Market behaviours significantly shape our society and the financial sector is always a central concern of policymaking. This unique Master of Financial Management and Law is designed to equip graduates with a sophisticated level of understanding of finance and financial systems, alongside knowledge of the legal and regulatory context and frameworks that shape financial sector activity and decision-making. Rather than a series of 'finance law' subjects taught within a Master of Laws, this degree draws on course content from different disciplinary areas, combining rigorous courses on essential elements of finance with compulsory and elective law courses. The degree is available for both law and non-law graduates and has a flexible structure across its two years. It is highly suited to those working or seeking to work in financial and advisory firms, policy and regulatory bodies, the legal profession, and elsewhere.
