Fraud and Financial Crime in an International Context
Financial crime is an area of both criminal and civil law that has vastly expanded over the past 30 years as a result of the globalization and liberalization of markets. The growth of the futures and options markets along with the increased use of computers and e-commerce has given the dishonest even more opportunities to commit financial crime and often to remain undetected.
This module will comprehensively examine the nature of fraud and financial crime in England and elsewhere with particular attention paid to possible remedies which may be available under national and international legislation. In such circumstances, the conflict of laws will be also highly relevant to the prevention of fraud and the module will examine possible strategies to expedite justice against international fraudsters through super national means.
