As the winter transfer window opens (a reference that will mean very little to those who don't follow European football) Searching Finance is delighted to announce that Dr Clare Chambers-Jones has signed with us to publish her forthcoming book: Regulating Gambling in Virtual Worlds.

Some more about Clare ...

Clare has worked in the City of London with Grant Thornton and subsequently Morgan Stanley, where she worked as an investment banking legal and compliance officer for Europe.

Her research interests are: banking law, financial education, financial exclusion, alternative financial delivery mechanisms, and mobile finance.

She is a senior law lecturer at University of West of England, Bristol law school and teaches European Law, Banking Law, Commercial Law and Banking and Finance LLM. She has been awarded an early career research grant to complete her research into virtual economics.

Clare writes prolifically on the subject of banking and finance (to put it mildly).
