The European Banking and Financial Law program from University of Luxembourg is one of the premier programmes in this field offered in continental Europe. The investment funds law option in the second semester of the second year is a legal qualification unique in Europe.


The European Banking and Financial Law program from University of Luxembourg focuses on the study of three essential pillars – banking law, securities and capital markets law, and investment funds law – or Collective Investment Schemes (CIS) law – in the framework of European Union law, Luxembourg law and comparative law.

The teaching team includes academics and renowned practitioners, specialised in banking and financial law.

Making use of modern and interactive teaching methods, blending individual study and team work, the programme combines the acquisition of basic concepts in the first semester and their practical application in the second semester through case-based learning developed by practitioners.
