Mr Michael Randall



Personal statement

I am the Course Director for the LLM Law & Finance programme, teaching classes in International Banking Law and Financial Regulation and Compliance. I also assisted with the English Law of Tort Class in the 2016-17 Academic Year and was the class conveynor for the Tort Law summer school in 2017.

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. I have also written in other areas of taxation, including the 'Tampon Tax'. 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).
