Lectures in English and in other languages - Rechtswissenschaft FB01

Knowledge of the German language is important and beneficial to successfully completing your studies in Frankfurt. We'll help you improve your German language skills while you're here, for instance with language classes in small teams, a well-equipped language learning facility and special classes for international students on the German Legal System. And don't forget: it's always easier to learn a language when you're immersed in the country and culture in which the language is spoken.

We are an international faculty, so besides teaching classes in German we offer many courses in English and other languages such as French, Italian or Turkish as well. This way, you'll get to know even more languages, legal systems, and you may even help your fellow students improve their foreign language skills. Win-win!

More up-to-date information on our classes can be found in the Vorlesungsverzeichnis.
