This subject is designed around the key legal concepts that underpin international financial transactions, including insolvency, security and the law governing the assignability of financial assets. These legal concepts are analysed in the context of international financial transactions, including bond issues, syndicated loans, securitisation, derivatives and Islamic finance. The subject provides students with insights into cross-border financial transactions and the role of international finance lawyers in structuring and advising on such transactions. It is therefore of particular interest to lawyers practising or seeking to practise law in this area and also to in-house lawyers and bankers in commercial and investment banks. A former senior practitioner, the lecturer has over 15 years of experience in financial transactions, including lending and security, property finance, asset finance, trade finance, banking products, debt restructuring, derivatives and structured finance.
This subject looks at the principal transactions, analysing the ways in which they are structured and implemented, and identifying the legal issues that are relevant to them.
