QLLM377 EU Financial and Monetary Law (Sem 1)

Module description

The purpose of this module is to analyse the institutions of EMU (Economic and Monetary Union), in particular the law of the ECB and the law of the euro, and the pillars of banking union (single supervision, single resolution, single deposit insurance). The module also examines the law relating to economic governance in the EU and Eurozone, and the road to economic union, and provides an introduction to Capital Markets Union. The relationship between the single market and the European financial architecture on the one hand and banking union on the other hand are also critically considered, in the light of the challenges that Europe faces in its process of integration.

This is an essential module for any student that wishes to practise financial law in the EU. It is a highly recommended module for anyone specializing in financial law, international finance or in European law. It provides an excellent background for anyone aspiring to work in European institutions, such as the European Central Bank or the European Commission and in national or European regulatory agencies and for students from other regions in the world that wish to understand better the process of European financial integration.
