Alastair Hudson's The Law of Finance brings together, for the first time, in a single volume, the whole of international finance, as understood in English law. The volume is divided into two halves with section one considering the principles of the law of finance and section two considering the full range of modern financial techniques in their legal context. By explaining key concepts and practical issues, examining core principles and analysing the key areas of financial practice and the effects of the global meltdown, Professor Hudson provides an unparalleled work of breadth of scope and wealth of detail.
