The Institute for Law and Finance at Frankfurt's Goethe University offers a unique one-year Masters of law program leading to an LL.M. Finance degree. The program, which is entirely in English, requires no prior German knowledge. It involves a rich mixture of instruction from leading academic authorities as well as practitioners from leading institutions including the European Central Bank, the German Ministry of Finance, the European Commission as well as the leading international financial institutions and financial law firms of Europe. Class size is kept small to allow maximum student-teacher interaction, and opportunity for two month working internships with leading institutions such as the European Central Bank, is included.
