Institute for Law and Finance Frankfurt

The Institute for Law and Finance is a non-profit foundation established in 2002 by Goethe University with the support of many prominent institutions. Leading commercial banks and international law firms, the Frankfurt Chamber of Commerce and Industry, the City of Frankfurt and the State of Hesse, as well as the European Central Bank and the Deutsche Bundesbank have been actively involved in the ILF right from the planning stages until today.


Recognizing that young professionals require advanced training in both law and finance so as to excel in today’s financial world, the ILF offers a unique postgraduate program leading to a Master of Laws in Finance (LL.M. Finance). This Master’s program is aimed at students interested in combining theoretical knowledge and practical training in the specialized fields of law and international finance. Major banks, international law firms and public institutions, including the European Central Bank in Frankfurt, the German Bundesbank and leading financial regulatory institutions, play a significant role in the development and implementation of the program.
The ILF, which is located in Frankfurt, the major financial centre in Europe, provides the ideal location to train young professionals to deal with the legal and financial challenges facing a Europe of 28 states and beyond.


In addition to its educational role, the ILF is also a centre of competence for research and policy-making in the areas of law and international finance.

Institute for Law and Finance Frankfurt: Student Life

Frankfurt actively encourages new students to come to this lively, cosmopolitan city. While Frankfurt is one of Europe's transportation hubs and economic centers, with just under 700,000 inhabitants, it is often called “the smallest metropolis in the world".  


Getting around Frankfurt is quick and easy by bike or public transportation. The Goethe Card that all students receive offers free local transportation on trains, buses, and trams. Yet without even leaving the city, Frankfurt's broad array of museums—many of which line the banks of the Main River—and cultural institutions offer students the opportunity to dive into theater or art with steep student discounts.


Located close to Germany's most picturesque wine-growing region, Frankfurt is a green city with over 120 parks. Nature lovers can explore the hills and valleys of the nearby Taunus area—or take a boat trip up the Rhine River. Sports fans will be able to join one of over 450 sports clubs in the city, as well take advantage of public pools, golf courses, and boat houses.


Plenty of outdoor markets, cafes, restaurants, and beer gardens are also found among the tree-lined streets in Frankfurt. Local specialties such as Apfelwein (apple cider) and Grüne Soße (a fresh, green herb sauce most often served with eggs and potatoes) are often served in rustic, corner restaurants, some of which have been around for centuries. With a high percentage of international residents in Germany, you can easily visit restaurants and buy ingredients from nearly every world cuisine.
