Michael Randall, Mr

I am the module leader on the LLM Financial Regulation and Compliance and International Banking Law modules in the school of law and will be assisting with the Tort Law on the English Law LLB in the second semester of the 2016-17 Academic year.

My research interests lie in Financial Law and concern regulating behaviour predominantly in the financial sector through taxation at both national and international level. My PhD thesis concerned the European Commission’s controversial and polarising proposal to introduce a tax on financial transactions occurring within the European Union, using it as a case study to assess legal theories of integration. Moving forward I am intending to conduct research into the adoption and implementation of local complementary currencies in the UK.

Prior to arriving at Strathclyde in 2016 I completed a Law and French (LLB) (2007-2011) and European Legal Studies LLM (2011-2012) both at Cardiff University, including an Erasmus year at the Université Picardie Jules Verne, Amiens, France (2009-10) during my undergraduate degree where I completed the 3rd Year French Public Law Licence. I subsequently undertook a PhD at the University of Leeds (2012-2016).
