The LL.M. finance program is a one-year postgraduate degree program instructed exclusively in English. Graduates who have a first degree in law, business or economics from an accredited university and who have strong academic records are eligible to apply to our program. Approximately 50 students are admitted each year in order to ensure academic excellence and direct personal contact between students and our faculty.
Students who wish to continue with their pre-existing employment contracts may also particpate in the LL.M. Finance program on a part-time basis, by completing the regular program over a period of two years. The LL.M. finance degree will train you to deal with and also excel in this increasingly important area where the worlds of international law and global finance meet.
The underlying success of the program is that it overcomes the traditional separation of the academic disciplines of law and business/economics. The LL.M. finance program teaches you aspects of both law and business/economics, with a focus on their intersection and interplay. The program is international in every respect: our curriculum, faculty and our students. The curriculum will enable you to gain both a theoretical understanding as well as a practical insight into the specific requirements of banks as well as corporations, international law firms, accounting and auditing firms, the European Central Bank and Germany's Bundesbank. The reason for this is because in addition to the outstanding academics, the majority of our faculty consists of top practitioners from the fields of law, banking, central banking and financial regulation.
As an integral and important part of the LL.M. Finance degree program, you will also have the valuable opportunity to participate in a seven to eight weeks' internship at one of the ILF's various sponsors from the financial, regulatory, central banking, international law and accounting areas.
