On par with the best

    Goethe University’s Institute for Law and Finance (ILF) makes the top ten in worldwide ranking.

    FRANKFURT/BRÜSSEL. The Institute for Law and Finance (ILF) at Goethe University has a strong international profile. It has now been named one of the top ten LL.M programmes in the field of law for banking, finance and securities for the year 2019 by the online portal “LL.M. Guide.”

    “LL.M.” stands for “Master of Laws”. It is a postgraduate law degree which can be obtained by law graduates as well as graduates of business, finance and other equivalent disciplines. The degree is especially widespread in the English-speaking parts of the globe. The Institute for Law and Finance at Goethe University offers two degrees programmes, namely LL.M. Finance and LL.M. International Finance. The institute is relatively young: it was established as a non-profit foundation in 2002 by Goethe University with the support of supervisory authorities, banks, and law firms for the purpose of conducting research and education in law and finance.

    The “LL.M. Guide” portal is a leading web portal for master of laws programmes. Prospective students can find extensive information on LL.M. master programmes offered worldwide, a discussion forum, and editorial articles about law degree programmes. Applicants from all over the world desiring an LL.M. use the portal to acquire information and prepare their applications for acceptance to a programme.

    The “LL.M. Guide” compared and evaluated the ILF’s two degree programmes with the LL.M. master of laws programmes at globally renowned international universities (e.g, Harvard, Columbia, Boston, London School of Economics, National University of Singapore). Outside of the Anglo-American parts of the globe, the ILF is the best institute of its kind in the world.
