About

The International Financial Regulation and Corporate Law course offered by Brunel University London, one of the few of its kind in the UK, will give you a solid grounding in the principles, procedures and practices underpinning international financial services regulation and the opportunity, through our range of elective modules, to tailor your studies to your legal interests and career objectives.

As financial services become increasingly global, and with the effects of Brexit on the sector still unknown, employers are looking for job candidates with the specialist skills required to stay on top of the changing regulatory environment. Your International Financial Regulation and Corporate Law LLM will give you that expertise and help you improve your career prospects whether in a law practice, the industry itself or academia.

Careers and your future

You’ll benefit from the guidance of dedicated careers advisors and the expertise of your personal tutor so whether you want to explore your passion for law or already have your dream job in mind, we’ll support you on your career journey. 

Our strong links with industry will help you to boost your career potential. Brunel is one of the few UK universities on the Blake Morgan Brand Ambassador Scheme – offering great work experience opportunities, mentoring programmes and giving you great exposure to the graduate recruitment team of a leading law firm. 

You’ll be sure to leave Brunel with a firm grounding in legal theory, allowing you to be flexible in your future choices. While many of our students specialise to enchance their legal practice work, others are sought after by government agencies, the private commercial sector (such as in-house lawyers) and non-governmental organisations wehre a background in commercial law is valued.

Under the umbrella of Law Lives, you’ll build, develop and strengthen transferable skills and experiences through a range of activities and programmes such as our Pro Bono Clinic, volunteering at the Family Court for the Personal Support Unit, and much more.
