LLM in Banking Law

University of Johannesburg
Campus Full time Part time 1 - 2 years February 2017 South Africa Johannesburg + 1 more

The University of Johannesburg’s LLM in Banking Law programme is designed to provide students with specialist knowledge in aspects of the law that are highly relevant to the banking sector. It is designed to be completed by full-time students within one year and by part-time students over two years. [+]

The University of Johannesburg’s LLM in Banking Law programme is designed to provide students with specialist knowledge in aspects of the law that are highly relevant to the banking sector. It is designed to be completed by full-time students within one year and by part-time students over two years. This programme as set out below must still be formally approved. It consists of a minor dissertation (60 credits) together with three compulsory taught modules (3x40 credits) namely: Banking Law (offered in the first semester): This module has a distinct private-law focus. The central concepts of money and payment are investigated by way of introduction. This is followed by a study of banks as payment intermediaries (in various methods of domestic and international payment), banks as guarantors (both independent and accessory), and banks as lenders. Finally the module deals with bank liability arising from contract, delict or enrichment. Most of the lectures are led by Prof Charl Hugo who heads the University’s Centre for Banking Law. Guest lecturers are used occasionally due to their particular expertise. Financial Services Regulation (offered in the second semester): The importance of sound regulation of financial services has been well demonstrated by the recent global financial crisis. Certain key international bodies drive international cooperation in this regard. As part of this process, South Africa has decided to switch to a twin-peaks system in terms of which all financial services are regulated under the auspices of a prudential and market conduct regulator, overseen by a financial stability oversight committee jointly represented by these two regulators. In this module some fundamental theoretical concepts in the regulation of financial services are explored, including systemic risk and contagion. The prudential and market-conduct regulation is considered with a focus on the legislative components that form part of this regulatory system. Legislation dealt with includes aspects of the Banks Act, the Financial Intelligence Centre Act, the Financial Markets Act with a focus on market infrastructures, the Collective Investment Schemes Control Act, the Credit Rating Services Act and the Financial Advisory and Intermediary Services Act. Finally, the ability of current financial regulation to deal with shadow banking practices is considered. The module leader is Prof Natania Locke. Credit Law (offered in the first semester): This module focuses on the National Credit Act, arguably one of the most important pieces of legislation in South Africa, which has featured in many reported cases and has generated much academic commentary. The module, however, is not limited thereto. It further covers certain applied principles of contract law and a variety of specific contracts such as ordinary money loans, mortgage agreements, instalment sales and leases of movables, secured transactions, suretyships and incidental credit agreements. The module leader is Prof Jannie Otto who has published widely in this regard. Note: there are no electives in this programme. Only in the event of the envisaged programme set out above not being approved the taught modules will be: Banking Law (which will be compulsory); either one of the following two modules: Credit Law (offered in the first semester) and Corporate Insolvency Law (offered in the second semester); and any one of the following modules: Credit Law, Corporate Insolvency Law, International Commercial Law A, International Commercial Law B; Company Law; Drafting of Contracts; Economic Crime; Insurance Law; e-Commerce; Interpretation of Contracts; and Unjustified Enrichment. Hence, Banking Law is compulsory as is either Credit Law or Corporate Insolvency Law in this programme. Due to the fact that both Credit Law and Corporate Insolvency Law are listed as free electives (in (iii) above) it will be possible to do both. With the exception of Financial Services Regulation, classes or seminars in the taught modules are presented in the evenings on weekdays from 18h00 to 20h00 (one class per module per week). Classes in Financial Services Regulation will be arranged differently (blocked) in consultation with the class. The next student intake will be in February 2017. In general, as a minimum admission requirement, students must have attained an average of 65% for the law subjects in their LLB degree. The number of students who can be effectively accommodated in the programme and modules having regardto the high level of personal interaction required between Master’s students and supervisors/study leaders will also be taken into account. Bursaries are available. Students who register for the first time in 2017 and who complete their Master’s degrees within a period of two years, qualify for reimbursement of their full tuition fees (excluding the registration fee and ICT levy and subject to certain terms and conditions).

Graduate Program in Banking and Financial Law

Boston University School of Law
Campus Full time Part time 2 - 8 semesters January 2017 USA Boston + 1 more

[+]

Masters of Laws in LLM Finance. The Graduate Program in Banking and Financial Law is the oldest LLM program of its kind in the United States. Since its inception in 1984, it has trained more than 2,000 lawyers for leadership positions in both domestic and foreign banking and financial services industries. Our graduates span the globe and hold influential positions in government, law firms, corporations, financial institutions of all types, and multilateral and non-governmental organizations.   The program has its roots in BU's Morin Center for Banking and Financial Law (now the Center for Finance, Law & Policy), which was founded in 1978 as the first institution in an American university devoted to the study of banking law. The program's mission, however, has never been more relevant than today. With the recent upheavals in financial markets, the legal and regulatory structure of the financial system has been redesigned and rebuilt. The future will offer opportunities in abundance for financial services lawyers who are familiar with the fundamentals of the industry and the regulatory and supervisory environment in which it operates.   The Graduate Program in Banking and Financial Law is challenging and is designed specifically for students who wish to obtain a graduate-level legal education in the field of financial services law. Ideal candidates are financial services lawyers who bring their expertise to the classroom and who want to improve their skills in today's rapidly changing world of financial services law. The program, which may be completed on a full- or part-time basis, is also appropriate for attorneys seeking to begin a new career after spending the first part of their professional lives in another legal field.   Students receive a practical education in financial services law, enabling them to contribute effectively in a professional setting. The Graduate Program is the only financial services LLM program in the US with its own faculty and with a curriculum of courses designed exclusively for graduate study (most competing programs consist of a selection of regular law school courses). The program of study, focusing on subjects such as banking law, securities law, insurance law, and business courses in accounting and economics, leads to the conferment of the LLM in Banking and Financial Law degree.   Domestic and international students are welcome and may attend the Graduate Program on a full- or part-time basis (most international students will be required to enroll on a full-time basis). Students may apply for admission to either the fall (September) or spring (January) semester. International lawyers may qualify for a US bar examination through the Graduate Program. All students benefit from the rich menu of activities that are taking place at the Graduate Program. Students are encouraged to apply to become part of the staff of the Review of Banking & Financial Law, a student-run journal with more than 30 years of continuous publication. [-]
