International Corporate Governance and Financial Regulation

Do you want the chance to delve into topical debates about the real-life problems firms face?

You will have an opportunity to undertake in depth comparative and contextual study of the regulation of the company. You will:

  • look at the various ways in which different jurisdictions respond to similar economic and social pressures, examining key topics in the post financial crisis era.
  • develop an understanding of the interaction between the process of globalisation and general principles and theories of corporate governance and financial regulation
  • study the main topics in corporate governance and financial law and regulation, including compliance dimensions
  • appreciate the economic and social context in which commercial decisions are made and corporate governance and financial regulation operate with reference to historical developments.

Term 1 - The core module and 2 optional modules
Term 2 - 3 optional modules
Term 3 - Dissertation

The programme also includes research and writing skills sessions to help you prepare for writing your dissertation.

The core module is taught in the first term with optional modules running in terms one and two. We are proud of the wide variety of modules we provide and the diverse international nature of our staff and student body.

You can find full details on our wide range of modules on our module pages. Please check to make sure that the modules you are interested in are listed as running for your year of study.

The course incorporates a wide and varying range of assessment methods, which may include essays, examinations, portfolios, presentations and a dissertation.

If you are a diploma student, you will only need to take the taught elements of the course and do not need to write a dissertation.

You will be given feedback after your assessments each term.

If you want to study with us part-time, the programme is studied over a two year period instead of one. You'll attend classes alongside our full-time students in the usual weekday lecture timetable, only you'll do fewer modules per year. The lectures you attend and therefore the days you'll be on campus depend on the modules you take and the days they've been timetabled.

In your first year you'll usually take the core module and three optional modules (two per term in total), and in your second year you'll usually take the remaining two modules and complete your dissertation.

We do everything we can to make it possible for you to study for an LLM part-time and hold down a job, provided your employers are amenable, so this structure is flexible.

I have found the lectures incredibly intellectually stimulating; they feature plenty of discussion so it is the perfect opportunity to voice your opinions and learn how to strengthen them upon hearing the alternative argument.
Colleagues in the Law School will be delivering modules to Bank of England staff as part of a new Bank of England - WBS postgraduate qualification in Central Banking and Financial Regulation. Professor Dalvinder Singh, Dr Giuliano Castellano and Dr Andreas Kokkinis will be teaching with WBS staff on the core modules, drawing on their joint experience of teaching on Warwick’s LLM in International Corporate Governance and Financial Regulation.
