Reading

Useful books are:

L Gullifer and J Payne Corporate Finance Law: Principles and Policy 3rd ed (Hart 2020) Core

R Cranston and others Principles of Banking Law (3rd ed 2017, OUP). This is the most up to date of the books and is very good on general banking law and the regulatory framework but does cover the course precisely.

A Hudson The Law of Finance 2nd edition (Sweet and Maxwell, London, 2013).  Fairly discursive but is now not really up to date. Very broad and deep coverage of the law and its commercial context.

E Ferran Principles of Corporate Finance 2nd ed (OUP, Oxford, 2014)

P Wood Law and Practice of International Finance (Sweet and Maxwell 2008) Very fast paced. Uses a lot of industry terminology. It provides a useful overview from a practitioner’s perspective. It is now out of date in significant respects.

If you wish to buy a book then  L Gullifer and J Payne Corporate Finance Law: Principles and Policy 3rd ed (Hart 2020) is probably the most useful. It should also be noted that an electronic copy is available through the library web-site. The readings for each week will make reference to the book.
