Combine Law and Finance with an LLM at Goethe University, Frankfurt
Goethe University, also known as Frankfurt University, houses the Institute of Law and Finance (ILF). Goethe University is one of the leading institutions for higher education in Europe, founded founded in 1914. The ILF was established in 2002 as a non-profit foundation by Goethe with the support of numerous high-profile institutions.
ILF recognizes the need of young professionals to get advanced training in both finance and law to stand out in the financial world today. This will be achieved through the LLM programs ILF is offering to graduates in law, economics, and business graduates.
The applications for the October 2017 classes are closed. However, ILF has announced that it will begin accepting applications for the 2018 LLM programs starting November 15, 2017. Professionals and graduates with an interest in law and finance should carefully consider the advantages of these programs. Currently, ILF offers the following Master of Laws courses:
- LLM in Finance

Both programs take 10 months to complete, and classes start in October. The LLM in Finance may be taken part time for up to 22 months.

ILF accepts online applications, which may also be sent or brought to the Institute. However, e-mailed supporting documentation will not be accepted. Applicants living outside Germany should submit earlier to allow for the visa and residence permit application process.
