Queen Mary MSc Law and Finance student wins essay contest
Nana Esi Atsem (pictured below), current student on the MSc Law and Finance programme, has won the $7,500 prize in an inaugural essay contest on banking regulation sponsored by the International Centre for Financial Regulation and the Financial Times, for her essay 'What works best for banking regulation: market discipline or hard-wired rules?'
The course offers a unique opportunity to study modules from the LLM programme, as well as those from various Economics Masters programmes, with the purpose of enabling students to be able to fully understand both economy and finance and also its legislative framework.
Further details about the FT competition and the MSc course can be found on the Queen Mary School of Law website.
