ILF Graduates

What do employers / lecturers say?

Dr. Hendrik Haag, Partner, Hengeler Mueller

“As a leading legal adviser in the field of international law of capital markets, Hengeler Mueller has a real interest in strengthening the Frankfurt financial market in the context of global competition. The ILF attracts young talent from all over the world through its qualitatively excellent program and especially contributes towards making Frankfurt an even more attractive place to work.”

Dr. Rüdiger Litten, Partner, Norton Rose Fulbright

"At Norton Rose Fulbright, we are looking for the best people. But who are the best? There is a multitude of skills that make a good lawyer, soft and hard. Amongst those are comprehension for the ever changing needs of clients from all over the world and the ability to combine legal and commercial thinking. I often found that students from the ILF have that set of skills." 

Matthew Howard, Partner, Allen & Overy

"As one of the world's leading global capital markets practices, Allen & Overy has a vital interest in the on-going training of talented, internationally-oriented finance lawyers, and as such we have long been enthusiastic supporters of the LL. M. program. At our offices in Frankfurt, we have had the pleasure of welcoming LL.M. Finance interns from over 15 countries, several of which have gone on to permanent positions with our firm.  We have found students attending the LL.M. Finance program to be highly intelligent, engaged and motivated, having an international perspective and diverse problem solving skills that together bring real value to our practice."

Over the past years as lecturer at the ILF, I am continuously impressed by the quality of students attracted by the LL.M. Finance program.  Each ILF class has been extraordinarily committed and I appreciated truly sophisticated discussions in my course “Energy Project Finance” . Looking at the careers of our alumni, it is rewarding to see that the ILF Master's degree is recognized to serve as a door-opener for many of those highly-talented young professionals to top private employers and public institutions globally.”

Looking for highly-qualified graduates?

The ILF LL.M. Finance curriculum offers not only a unique combination of the disciplines of law and finance but also provides a real interaction between theory and practice.

The highly selective admissions process guarantees that participants in the LL.M. Finance program have the requisite potential to excel in today's competitive and complex legal and financial world.

In order to successfully complete the one-year English-language program, participants must be highly motivated, be able to work under extreme pressure, as well as possess effective communication and organizational skills.
