This subject will analyse international financial transactions from a legal and regulatory perspective, focusing on the impact of the on-going global credit crisis.

From this basis, the course will analyse the major international financial transaction structures, specifically: (1) international syndicated loans; (2) international bond offerings; (3) swaps; (4) global offerings; (5) securitisation; (6) credit derivatives; and (7) project finance. Use of standardised documentation, as well as interdisciplinary and comparative materials will be made where relevant.
