The University of Luxembourg and its Faculty of Law, Economics and Finance (FDEF) endeavour to take a leading role in the study and teaching of inclusive finance, which seeks to further access of poor populations to financial services. Together with Appui au Développement Autonome (ADA), a non-governmental organisation supported by the Luxembourg Ministry of Foreign Affairs, they founded the ADA Chair in Financial Law (Inclusive Finance) to advance the emerging field of law and regulation of inclusive finance, with a focus on knowledge transfer from European jurisdictions to developing countries and the further development of financial law and regulation in developing countries.
As a result of this partnership, the University of Luxembourg (UL) is launching the Certificate in Law and Regulation of Inclusive Finance, aimed at regulators, intermediaries and other inclusive finance organisations. Taught in four modules, the course comprises 72 Teaching Units (TU).
The objective of the program is to deepen the students’ specific knowledge and skills in the field of inclusive finance law and regulation, with a focus on developing countries. In order to achieve this objective:
Interactive courses are taught by European and international academics and representatives of leading law and accountancy firms who promote discussions, argumentation and negotiation as an integral part of their teaching effort;
Besides their participation in courses, students will have the opportunity to work on case studies and will prepare oral presentations.
Designed as a Continuing Legal Education (CLE) program, the Certificate of Advanced Studies (CAS) targets regulators and intermediaries, as well as civil society organizations active in the field of inclusive finance.
