The University of Hong Kong (HKU) has announced the launch of a new LL.M. program in Compliance & Regulation.

The program will help participants understand the law around compliance in the financial sector, which, since the 2008 global financial crisis, has become increasingly important.

The program's core courses will cover a variety of topics, from money laundering to international securities law and the regulation of private banking. Students will also be able to choose a capstone course, in which they can explore issues like financial law, human rights, or compliance in the Hong Kong securities industry.

The LL.M. will be offered as both a full-time option, which can be completed in one year; or a part-time option, which will take two years to complete.

In recent years, a number of law schools have launched LL.M.s in financial regulation or compliance. Georgetown University Law Center, for instance, offers an LL.M. in Securities and Financial Regulation and LSE offers an LL.M. in Banking Law and Financial Regulation.

HKU's new LL.M. is set to launch this fall. For more information, please see HKU's LL.M. in Compliance & Regulation webpage.
