Master of Laws
The LLM in Paris is an innovative Master of Laws programme, which is taught in English by Queen Mary academics with prestigious visiting lecturers.
Developed by the Centre for Commercial Law Studies (CCLS) this LLM will lead to a prestigious Queen Mary University of London qualification.
This course will provide you with in-depth immersion in commercial law from both comparative and international perspectives, within a common law framework. It will enable you to enhance your understanding of your own legal system, by giving you the tools to explore current commercial law issues from an international and comparative perspective. Ultimately, the course aims to better prepare contemporary lawyers for an increasingly globalised world.
One of the distinctive features of the LLM in Paris programme is its flexible structure, designed to enable you to complete the programme without having to interrupt your professional career. The taught elements are delivered in intensive daytime or evening classes, with the option to spread your studies over one year (full-time) or two years (part-time).
We appreciate that for many students, improving their command of legal English is a vital part of undertaking an LLM and we have therefore incorporated legal English support throughout the course.
The LLM Paris is taught in the University of London Institute in Paris (ULIP), in premises shared with the British Council in the 7th arrondissement, a short walk from the Champs Elysées in Paris, France.
We have arranged with the Paris Bar School to allow their students to validate the LLM as part of their training (PPI). For further details, contact Maria Teresa Rechard, Directeur Adjoint aux Relations Internationales of the EFBEFB by email on email@example.com
We also have an informal partnership with SciencesPo Law, a leading law school in Paris where many courses are taught in English. Students of the Queen Mary Paris LLM are able to attend certain lectures and seminars organised by the SciencesPo Law School, and vice versa. Assessment and core teaching for LLM students is still provided entirely by Queen Mary.
This programme will:
Give the opportunity for lawyers of various nationalities, notably French and British, to work and study alongside each other.
Allow students at the Paris Bar School (EFB) and early career lawyers the possibility to obtain an English LLM degree while being in Paris. Such a qualification is a great added value to any potential employer.
Maximise your professional opportunities with an international and comparative focused LLM from a leading UK commercial law school.
Enable practitioners to update and enhance their knowledge and understanding whilst continuing their employment.
