The ILF situated in the House of Finance at Campus Westend of the Goethe University Frankfurt am Main offers the most modern equipment and facilities and state of the art technology for the use of its students during their studies.
The House of Finance amalgamates the university's interdisciplinary research on finance, monetary economics, and corporate and financial law under one roof. About 150 researchers with special interests in various aspects of finance coming from several academic research and training units will be working together. The concentration of experts and leading academics at one location promotes direct and unlimited exchange of information and ideas not only among themselves but also enhances networking and collaboration with the community and at the international level.
2 computer rooms in the House of Finance allows our students access to all databases and the internet via stationary desktops and numerous notebook cable sockets. Wireless LAN is also available in the House of Finance. ILF students can use the library and computer facilities every day around the clock.
ILF students are full members of the University community and are eligible to use all facilities (including sport facilities), available to students of the University.
The ILF library, also located in the House of Finance, is based on the extensive law collection of the former Institute of Foreign and International Business Law (AIW) and contains more than 30,000 volumes, including about 100 international periodicals. We subscribe to the Jurisdata, LexisNexis and WestLaw databases. In addition, we have electronic access to legal, economic and finance journals via the City and University Library (Stadt- und Universitätsbibliothek).
We are in close proximity to the main collections of the City and University Library, along with the various libraries of the University’s Department of Law and the Department of Business and Economics. The Deutsche Bibliothek, the national library and national bibliographic information center for the Federal Republic of Germany, is also located in Frankfurt. The library resources of the Deutsche Bundesbank are also accessible to students.
