Introduction

Knowledge of corporate finance law is essential for lawyers, bankers and financiers who are keen to develop professional skills in corporate fundraising, deal structures and transactional management. Our Corporate Finance Law LLM offers an enhanced qualification for professionals working or planning to work in a technically demanding and dynamic global industry. It will appeal to both recent graduates and practitioners considering various fields of work, including law, investment banking, corporate finance, private equity, securities, investments, financial regulation, government agencies and international financial authorities.

You'll focus on learning how the financial markets work, from the primary markets involving the issuance of equity, debt and derivatives, to the secondary markets involving trading and investments, as well as very large financial transactions in the international capital markets. Importantly, you'll also learn how to take account of legal and regulatory risks that financiers and bankers face, and structure financial instruments to suit commercial priorities and social welfare policies.

This course is structured to give you a comprehensive understanding of the practical processes and innovative products of the international corporate finance market, including equity and debt capital, derivatives, structured finance, risk management and investment portfolio products. It's also designed to help you develop the soft skills you'll need in this area of practice, including negotiations and network building, with meetings with senior lawyers and directors of major companies.
