The programme has the ambition to set a new and higher standard for what may be expected of financial lawyers, and therefore makes no concessions in its economics curriculum, which 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.
