Spearheaded by Professor GA Walker, the Centre for Commercial Law Studies (CCLS), Queen Mary University of London and international law firm Simmons & Simmons have established a joint Student Support Programme aimed at supporting CCLS’ LLM students in the area of FinTech and Regulatory Technology (RegTech).
The initiative will bring together cutting edge academic and professional expertise in this key area of modern financial law and market development. FinTech is expected to result in substantial disruption to many areas of traditional and legacy banking and financial services. The law and legal implications of these developments giving rise to many difficult and complex issues.
It was a visit to an office – Simmons & Simmons, when it launched its £100,000 fintech fund a year ago — that gave Jin Enyi, an LLM student at QMUL, the idea for the student support programme between the university’s Centre for Commercial Law Studies and the firm.
