Professor Dr Rosa María Lastra 
“I consider that combining the work of the home and professional work which in my case is in the field of academia, is a rewarding albeit challenging task. The balancing of competing demands for one's time can some times be a source of stress. But it is important to keep the priorities right: home and family comes first. The needs of the children are dynamic and change over time. In order to deal with those needs certain flexibility is required as well as generosity, fortitude and good time management.”


Rosa Lastra is Professor in International Financial and Monetary Law at the Centre for Commercial Law Studies (CCLS), Queen Mary, University of London. She is a member of Monetary Committee of the International Law Association (MOCOMILA), a founding member of the European Shadow Financial Regulatory Committee (ESFRC), a senior research associate of the Financial Markets Group of the London School of Economics and Political Science, and an affiliated scholar of the Centre for the Study of Central Banks at New York University School of Law. She has consulted with various governmental and intergovernmental institutions, including the International Monetary Fund, the World Bank, the Asian Development Bank, the Federal Reserve Bank of New York and the UK Treasury Select Committee.

Prior to coming to London, she was an Assistant Professor of International Banking at Columbia University School of International and Public Affairs in the City of New York (1993-1996) and Director of the International Business and Finance Studies within the Master of International Affairs Program. From January 1992 to September 1993 she was a consultant in the Legal Department of the International Monetary Fund in Washington D.C., where she participated in numerous programs of technical assistance in the fields of banking and central banking in countries in Eastern Europe, Former Soviet Union, Latin America, Asia and Africa. She studied at Valladolid University, Madrid University, London School of Economics and Political Science and Harvard Law School.

Her list of publications includes two authored books, Legal Foundation of International Monetary Stability (Oxford University Press, 2006) Central Banking and Banking Regulation (FMG of the LSE, 1996); two edited books, The Reform of the International Financial Architecture (Kluwer Law, 2001) and Bank Failures and Bank Insolvency Law in Economies in Transition (with Henry Schiffman, Kluwer Law, 1999); and numerous articles in internationally refereed journals such as the International and Comparative Law Quarterly of the British Institute of International and Comparative Law, the Harvard International Law Journal, the Columbia Journal of European Law and the Journal of International Economic Law.
