International exchanges and partnerships have revealed that, for various reasons, foreigners are interested in French and European Union Law. For both students and professionals knowledge of these legal fields could be crucial for a successful career. Yet a French Law Degree requires a good level in the French language.
For the first time UCP’s School of Law offers a unique national degree in French and European Union Law taught in English. It is aimed at graduates from non French jurisdictions and foreign professionals settled in France or doing business with French partners eager to acquire a strong background in French and European Union Law.
Applicants may undertake the two distinct semesters over a period of two different academic years. In addition, students who enrol and succeed in only the first semester will receive a University Certificate.
Classes and seminars are taught by academics and by practising lawyers or other professionals. The advantage of such an association is to offer students real contacts both inside the School of Law and among the legal community. Some seminars are taught by and within international firms based in Paris
To ensure quality, the Degree is selective and designed for law students who have a high level of legal studies and a very good level of the English language.
