Program provides 2 pathways for students with legal or economic/finance backgrounds

Queen Mary, University of London (QMUL) has announced it will be beginning a new interdisciplinary LL.M. program in Law and Economics in September 2012. The program will be taught jointly by the Centre for Commercial Law Studies and the university's School of Economics and Finance.

The program will offer two sub-level pathways: a jurisprudence pathway for those with a legal background or undergraduate degree in law; and an economics pathway for those with an economic/finance background or undergraduate degree in economics or finance.

According to the university, students will have the opportunity to engage in an academic year-long Investment Club, where they can gain hands-on experience in trading and portfolio analysis alongside their studies.

The school has also announced two bursaries: a £7,500 bursary for a non-EU student and a £5,000 bursary for a Home/EU student.
