    Course Summary

    An MSc in Law and Finance from the University of Leeds is the perfect first step on your career in the financial services industry. Ever since the global financial crisis, there has been a keen interest in international finance law, and the many causal and contributing factors to such economic collapses. There has therefore been an ever increasing demand for experts in this field.

    Students of this course will learn about corporate governance, banking regulation, accounting and reporting, all on both national and international scales. There will be a heavy focus on policy, especially in terms of financial regulation in response to the global financial crisis.

    Of course, you will also gain the general financial, legal and analytical skills you’ll need to ensure a successful career.

    If you are changing direction after starting in another career area, you will possess valuable work experience and professional awareness. Many employers actively seek candidates with these benefits. Our network of contacts, a dedicated employability service and a reputation in the legal profession mean we also have an outstanding track-record of finding students legal employment.Many employers favour GDL students in an increasingly competitive legal job market. Through studying another degree subject, you will have gained many transferable skills. By taking the conversion route into law, you are showing motivation and determination by choosing law at a later stage than some others. This looks good to employers.

    Course Outline

    Students will attend a week-long intensive program designed to provide the finance and legal basics that they will need to make the most of the course proper.

    The core curriculum of compulsory modules in the course will give a good grounding in corporate law and finance, securities regulation, financial regulation and governmental policy, financial services and derivatives, gathering and analysing statistical data, financial accounting and corporate level decision making.

    There are also a wide range of optional, elective modules from which you can build a very marketable specialisation.

    Learning & Teaching

    You will experience many forms of instruction over the course of this program. Most modules will feature lectures and seminars, on a weekly or fortnightly basis. Of course, there will be a heavy emphasis on independent study.

    As there is a dissertation requirement, this will be closely supervised. Both individual coaching and advice will be given.

    Career Possiblities

    Many graduates go on to PhD programs, or to careers in international journalism. Career paths involving PR for the public, private or not for profit sectors are common, as are corporate finance based positions.

    This program has a heavy emphasis on communication, research and analysis. That means that even if you don’t go on to a career in finance or finance law, your skills will be transferrable to a wide range of roles.

    No matter what career path you choose, you’ll have the support of the University of Leeds’ Career Centre. You’ll have all the advice and assistance you could need, both in terms of planning your career, and in launching it effectively. They will be there for you during the course, and also long after graduation.
