Course content

Numerous rapid changes in the global financial markets over the past few decades have dramatically altered the requirements for and contents of legal study. With the development of new financial instruments such as derivatives and international hedge funds as well as entirely new requirements for financial regulation, central banking and insolvency law, there is an urgent need for professionals to be trained in the qualitatively new and rapidly evolving areas of legal practice.

The LL.M. Finance degree program at the ILF will train you not only to deal with but also to excel in this increasingly important area where the worlds of international law and global finance meet. Up to about 50 students will be admitted in order to ensure academic excellence and direct, personal contact between students and the faculty.
The LL.M Finance program may be done on a part-time basis by completing the regular one-year LL.M. Finance program over a period of two years. The purpose of such an arrangement is to allow students to work part-time during their studies, thereby financing their studies at the ILF.
