Overview

One of the key questions for lawyers dealing with financial transactions is "if the operation of this transaction goes wrong and the matter comes before court, what will the judge do?" To be able to answer this, the financial lawyer has to understand not only the applicable rules but also the concepts and principles underlying them. Rather than applying the rules found in a textbook they must start from the principles and build on these. This book gives students a clear understanding of these principles, providing valuable knowledge about the practice of international financial law as well as the concepts behind it.

Globalization has had a huge impact on financial law transactions; future problems may occur or be litigated in foreign jurisdictions. As such it is crucial to understand concepts that are relevant to other jurisdictions, especially those that are not as significant to UK domestic law. Covering other common law centers including Hong Kong, Singapore and Sydney this book also looks at the distinction of legal concepts between civil and common law.

Principles of International Financial Law provides students with a clear and authoritative understanding of the principles of the rules guiding this complex area of law. It allows students to understand the reasoning of court decisions and predict for themselves the future approach of courts, in cases where there are precedents in place as well as without.
