The Faculty of Law Cambridge in the snowThe Law Faculty and the Judge Business School (JBS) will launch in 2012-13 a programme of reciprocal teaching, running for two years in the first instance.

Dr. Peter Szilagyi of JBS will lead the teaching of a module on accounting and finance as part of the Masters in Corporate Law (MCL) programme, which will commence operations in 2012-13. This module will provide MCL students with the opportunity to familiarize themselves with the practical and legal aspects of accounting and finance.

Professor Eilis Ferran will offer an elective on financial services regulation as part of JBS’s M. Fin. programme. The elective will also be open to students of JBS’s MBA programme. The course will introduce JBS students to the main objectives of financial regulation, including financial stability and market efficiency, integrity, and transparency, and equip them with an understanding of the main tools and techniques that regulators and supervisors employ to achieve these goals.

These teaching initiatives build upon strong pre-existing links between the Law Faculty and JBS. Members of the Law Faculty and JBS are both closely involved with the operations of the Centre for Business Research, an interdisciplinary centre based at JBS. The Law Faculty and JBS are also participants in the Cambridge Finance, which coordinates programmes of research and study in all areas of finance across the University.
