Our Law School on Banking and Finance follows the concept of being an international conference regarding the current issues of importance in the field of Banking & Finance.

The aim of our one-week program is to offer the participants the opportunity to provide themselves with detailed knowledge in the area of the European and International banking and capital market law. For this purpose we’re going to have lectures for the academic contents by renowned speakers. Furthermore experienced and internationally active lawyers will share their views with the participants within the scope of case studies. Besides, there will be a certain time frame for the participants to focus on different aspects of the topic.

In addition the program is divided in two: At the beginning we devote ourselves to the principles of banking and finance. We’re going to finish this section by lecture on European tax law. Moreover we will give to our participants an excurse to the topic of Financial Technologies (FinTech) to light up upcoming special financing forms.

Additionally we’ll spend the second half of the week in the financial centre of Europe in Frankfurt/Main. There we’ll have interesting lectures about the monetary policy within the Eurosystem and the lastest banking developments, including the visit to one of the largest Banks of Europe, leading law firms and institutions.
