Training – Financial Markets

Lots of legal translation texts have references to finance – I would almost say that the fields of law and finance are impossible to separate in many areas. So you may find this course useful.

Offered by Yale University in the USA and taught by Nobel prizewinner Robert Shiller, this beginner’s guide to “Financial Markets” is available on Coursera, the MOOC platform, and is free unless you require a certificate.

Syllabus covers:

  • Financial markets, insurance, and CAPM (Capital Asset Pricing Model)
  • Behavioral finance, forecasting, pricing, debt, and inflation
  • Stocks, bonds, dividends, shares, market caps
  • Corporation basics and some basic financial markets history
  • Recessions, bubbles, the mortgage crisis, and regulation
  • Options and bond markets
  • Investment banking, underwriting processes, brokers, dealers, exchanges, and new innovations in financial markets
  • Nonprofits and corporations.
