Wiesbaden is located in southwest Germany and is the capital of the federal state of Hesse. As one of the oldest spa towns in Europe, its name translates to "meadow baths," making reference to the fourteen hot springs that are still flowing today. Largely spared by allied bombing raids during World War II, Wiesbaden has retained much of its beautiful architecture and historical charm.

:Transnational Commercial Law (TCL) deals with the growing body of internationally unified or harmonized law in areas of particularly high relevance to international commerce, such as the United Nations Convention on the International Sale of Goods (CISG), the New York Convention on the Recognition and Enforcement of Arbitral Awards or the most recently enacted UNIDROIT Convention on International Interests in Mobile Equipment but also the framework of the World Trade Organisation (WTO) and the World Intellectual Property Organisation (WIPO) as well as the dispute resolution mechanisms for investorstate relations as organised by the International Centre for Settlement of Investment Disputes (ICSID). In particular, the European Union has enacted a large body of unified law for building the European internal market, e.g. securities law, foreign trade law, banking and financial regulatory law, antitrust law, intellectual property law or international civil litigation. The overall aim of the programme is to provide students with an overview of the most important concepts, methods and general problems of transnational commercial law as well as an introduction to a selection of important instruments of transnational commercial law.
