Consumer Credit - Local and Global

6 May 2011

This exciting new unit will cover contemporary consumer credit law and policy in Australia as well as in major economies, such as the United States and the European Union.

Consumer Credit - Local and Global will provide an overview of global regulatory developments covering the microfinance sector, which are being initiated by the G20 and international standard setters such as the Bank of International Settlements, the Financial Stability Board and the Financial Action Task Force.
We are fortunate that this course will be taught by Adjunct Professor Ros Grady.

Adjunct Professor Grady has a wealth of experience from her international practice as a leading banking and finance partner at the leading law firm Mallesons Stephen Jaques and from her current role as an international consultant in financial sector regulation.

Adjunct Professor Grady focuses on regulatory systems for consumer and small business credit systems.

Her clients include the World Bank, the United Nations Development Fund, the Asian Development Bank and the international microfinance think tank Accion International.

The unit will be taught on a participatory basis and will make use of national and international case studies and discussion groups.

There will also be the opportunity to learn from invited guest lecturers.

New skills and knowledge acquired from the course could be used both in Australia and internationally and in many professions.

For example, a participant might work in a local or global bank or industry body, as a policy maker, regulator or consumer advocate, as a credit or operational risk manager or as an international policy adviser or practitioner in the world of financial inclusion and microfinance.

The unit is available to study through the following Sydney Law School degree programmes:

Candidates can also enrol in this subject on a Legal Professional Development (LPD), Single Unit Enrolment or Cross-Institutional basis.
