There are course requisites for this subject. See access conditions.



The rise of digital finance has created challenges and opportunities for traditional financial and legal systems. As such, it is important to examine the relationship between digital finance and the law. In this unit, students are introduced to a range of topics linked to the intersection between digital finance and the law, including the role of regulatory technology (RegTech). Specific topics vary from year to year but may include: blockchain, financial security law, intellectual property (including non-fungible tokens) law, privacy law, RegTech, and regulatory theory. Students critically reflect on the adequacy of the law in the digital finance space and consider how reform could enhance its effectiveness.
