Martin Eduard Debusmann: During my time at Luxembourg, I especially appreciated the small study groups, the international atmosphere, and the highly motivated faculty. In understanding European law, it helped a lot that my 19 class mates from 12 nations could contribute the various national aspects of their home legislation. The programme was intense and demanding, and I remember many nights of fruitful discussions in my study group. My professors and lecturers were absolutely supportive, and I have stayed in regular touch with several of them. ...read more

         

 

 

Fostier Arnaud: The master / LLM in International and European law is, by far, the best choice any student wishing to specialise in business law could make. The number of students is limited which creates a friendly environment and allows the luxury of individual staff attention to each student. The faculty is composed of the best academics as well as lawyers practising in major law firms and having invaluable experience in all fields of Luxembourg law. ...read more

Leroy Julien : The Master was of great interest to me; not only was I able to learn precisely about the core banking and financial European legislation taught by renowned academics on the one hand but also to be handled practical legal Luxembourgish issues by leading lawyers/experts on the other hand.
The academics were always ready to answer questions and available for further consultation. To me, the subjects instructed are the essence of legal practice in this specific field and I would recommend this Master to motivated students and legal specialists. ...read more

         

 

 

Maninchedda Maud : I have an LLM in European Law and have been working in international banks and law firms in Luxembourg for five years. I have acquired practical experience in the fields of corporate law and undertakings for collective investments (UCITS) but I wanted to gain in-depth knowledge of investment funds issues. I have therefore taken the opportunity to build my knowledge in banking and financial law by taking the Master II in European Banking and Financial law - Collective Investment Scheme option (CIS). I have discovered that, in addition to the legal aspects, this master also covers tax and financial topics. The rigorous academic content taught by famous experts is the best way to familiarize oneself with the financial environment as a whole.
Studying part-time while working full-time bridges theory with practice. Indeed, this qualification provides a range of transferable skills and experience and will, for sure, expose new horizons. In the mid-term, I am planning to use the knowledge gained to help develop the services provided by the growing alternative investment fund team of my law firm and to be able to assist investment managers with their daily and strategic needs.
