After two years, and with the first class graduating later this year, the LLM-Master of Laws in International Finance degree programme will open full-time.

Truman Bodden Law School LLM Course Leader Laura Panadès has opened admissions to the programme for the September 2019 start. The deadline for applications is 30 Aug. 2019.

International students, as well as Caymanian nationals and local residents, are welcome to apply.

The programme tackles selected areas of the law, providing advanced knowledge of legal rules affecting international finance, anti-money laundering, conflict of laws and public-private partnerships.

The LLM is offered in partnership with the University of Liverpool in the UK.

Students will gain valuable skills for the marketplace, including detailed understanding of financial issues, legal report writing and oral presentation skills, the law school said in a press release.

The course is offered full-time and part-time, with classes scheduled in the late afternoon in central George Town to facilitate work commitments and enjoy lower levels of traffic.

Full-time students will complete the programme in one year. This is expected to attract international students interested in Cayman’s reputation as a leading offshore jurisdiction.

Part-time study requires degree completion in two years and is open to Caymanian nationals and local residents only.
