How are money and debt produced, regulated, and shared by domestic and international financial and monetary institutions, such as commercial and investment banks, government central banks, and the IMF? What other roles do financial institutions play and what risks do they create, and how do regulations control and shape those institutions? Harvard Law courses and legal clinics provide opportunities for students to learn about the role of money and money design, financial technology and digital currencies, federal budget policy, financial and securities regulation, international finance, and monetary reform.
