Study programme

The Master's Law & Finance has the ambition to set a new and higher standard for what may be expected of financial lawyers. It includes courses on financial and corporate law and regulation. The relevant subjects will be studied from a combined financial-legal perspective. Students will therefore be taught to think and practice in a thoroughly interdisciplinary manner.
