The University of Southampton Law School is inviting applications for its 1 year LLM in Finance Law programme. This unique programme covers the entire range of financial markets, their regulation and the principal legal issues that will imbue students with knowledge about the finance industry and the skills to work in that field. The Southampton Law School, whose programmes are recognised by the Bar Council of India, is one of the leading law schools in the UK with a worldwide reputation for excellence in education and research.

The Southampton Law School is also offering 30% scholarships to suitably qualified Indian students on its post graduate LLM programmes. Students applying for the programme are required to have a Bachelors Degree in Law or the international equivalent, but account may also be taken of practical experience within the relevant field of study.
