Certificate in Law and Regulation of Inclusive Finance

Monday, January 16, 2017 to Friday, January 27, 2017

The University of Luxembourg and its Faculty of Law, Economics and Finance has partnered with ADA to advance the emerging field of law and regulation of inclusive finance with a focus on knowledge transfer from European jurisdictions to developing countries and the further development of financial law and regulation in developing countries.


As a result of this partnership, the University of Luxembourg (UL) launches the Certificate in Law and Regulation of Inclusive Finance, aimed at regulators, intermediaries and other inclusive finance organisations. Taught in four modules, the course comprises 72 Teaching Units (TU).

  • Module 1: Overview of financial, inclusive finance and cross-border regulatory supervision.
  • Module 2: Law and ethics, including ethical investments and the impact of non-legal ordering on the practice of the law.
  • Module 3: Luxembourg and European investment vehicles that may be used for inclusive finance investments.
  • Module 4: Banking law, in particular deposit-taking and risk management, e-payment and FinTech for developing countries, and client and insolvency protection.

The programme aims at ensuring awareness of the topic of law and regulation in the inclusive finance scene, enabling an exchange with regulators and financial intermediaries and facilitating further academic and non-academic cooperation. The programme will be held from 16 to 27 January 2017.
