Comments about Master International Banking and Insurance Law - At the institution - London - Greater London

  • Objectives
    We offer seven specialist modules in aspects of banking, finance and insurance law, as well as a wide range of other business law options, enabling you to really specialise in this complex but important area. The course is centred on the needs of the modern professional lawyer working or intending to work in an international banking or insurance law environment. The course of legal study is set in a broad context while giving you a detailed knowledge and depth of understanding. Tuition is through seminars for which you will be expected to come prepared and willing to contribute to a discussion. Participation will help you develop analytical, critical, communication and research skills useful not only for your studies but on which you can build in your future career. A compulsory one-week foundation programme precedes the first semester to provide you with a foundation in common law and EC legal principles, skills of information technology, legal writing, library research and examination techniques.
