Structure of studies

The “Master en Droit Bancaire et Financier Européen” builds on a joint first year (M1) of all six LL.M. specialisations offered by the Faculty of Law, Economics and Finance, offering the necessary foundations to pursue the programme. Module 3 in the first semester of this joint first year includes an obligatory course on European banking and financial law. Module 6 in the second semester of the M1 offers an obligatory seminar on European investment funds law.

The second year (M2) of the “Master in Droit Bancaire et Financier Européen” constitutes a programme dedicated to banking and financial law based on three pillars – banking law, securities and capital markets law, and investment funds law (Collective Investment Schemes – CIS). The first semester of the M2 is designed as a common core to allow all students to acquire and master the basics of these three pillars. In the second semester, the Master splits into two tracks. The general track deepens knowledge of the three pillars with an emphasis on Luxembourg law and comparative banking and financial law. The Collective Investment Schemes track offers students a specialisation in this area through in-depth study of Luxembourg investment funds law and different types of investment funds (UCITS and AIF) as well as certain specific aspects (taxation, criminal law, rules of conduct, etc.) while also providing insights into comparative investment funds law and portfolio management.
