Wiesbaden and the Rhine-Main region
Wiesbaden is the capital of the federal state of Hesse and, boasting several hot springs, one of the oldest spa towns in Europe.
Counting a population of around 275,000 inhabitants, Wiesbaden is the second largest city in Hesse behind Frankfurt and has established itself as the headquarters of insurance companies and government departments. Together with Mainz, Darmstadt and above all Frankfurt, Wiesbaden is one of the major cities in the Rhine-Main area, one of the largest and economically strongest metropolitan regions in Europe.
With its banks and financial institutions, Messe Frankfurt – the world's largest trade fair organiser – and Frankfurt Airport, Frankfurt has become an economic and cultural hub for Europe and the world.
The German or European headquarters of numerous multinational companies, law firms, management consultancies and audit firms are located in the Rhine-Main region. And the area is home to a number of EBS Law School's partners, including highly regarded law firms and leading organizations.
Wiesbaden is therefore the ideal location for aspiring legal professionals where they have the opportunity, close to practice, to combine a legal studies programme with business and management content.
