Overview

Established in 2008, the Joint LLM in International Commercial Law was one of the very first programmes of its kind. It offers tuition in two countries by renowned specialists and is designed to equip you with the knowledge and skills you need to work in an international business environment. It is aimed at students who are adaptable and ready to embrace a challenging year: the programme is demanding but offers excellent career prospects!

Where will I study?

You spend your first semester in Dundee before completing your studies at Cergy-Pontoise, which is 30 minutes from central Paris by train. You can start in September or January, and complete your dissertation with supervision from Dundee academics over the summer months. Successful candidates graduate with the Dundee LLM and the Master 2 degree from Cergy-Pontoise.

Who should study this course?

This course is designed for individuals with a background in law, i.e. a good honours degree in law (acquired or anticipated to have by the expected start date), or in exceptional circumstances non-law graduates with a considerable amount of relevant legal experience.

Dundee Law School

Dundee Law School is widely recognised as an excellent place to study. Both the Guardian and Times league tables placed Dundee as the top Law School in Scotland and in the top 10 in the UK, building on particularly strong results in the National Student Survey, which has repeatedly ranked Dundee as first in Scotland. Over the last two national reviews of research, Dundee is the only institution in the UK to have had all of its submissions rated as “internationally excellent” or “world-leading”. 

Our commitment is to provide high-quality instruction, with a focus on practical relevance, to prepare you for a successful career, at home or abroad. We offer an induction programme at the start of each semester, to ensure that you have the necessary understanding of the UK and European legal systems and of what is required of you in a study environment seeking to develop independent learning

We seek to integrate you into the life of the School, with invitations to guest lectures and seminars. We also have an annual reading party in a beautiful country house, where you are joined by staff to work on academic skills and relax with fellow students.

Teaching Excellence Framework (TEF)

The University of Dundee has been given a Gold award – the highest possible rating – in the 2017 Teaching Excellence Framework (TEF).

Teaching & Assessment

How you will be taught

You will be taught through a mix of lectures, seminar discussions and tutorials, with an emphasis on seminars that build on reading done on the basis of the specific reading lists provided.

How you will be assessed

You will be assessed through a combination of exams and essays. The courses taught by Law share a common pattern; those in the autumn semester are assessed by exam and those in the second semester by essays. In each case you will be given a chance to practice this style of assessment and given feedback on your performance before the formal assessment.

This pattern ensures that you will gain experience of different styles of assessment, testing both breadth and depth of knowledge and developing writing skills in advance of tackling the Dissertation. The Dissertation is assessed wholly on the basis of the final text that is submitted and Legal Research Skills by a combination of a short essay and a presentation.

What you will study

You will take three modules in your Dundee semester, plus Legal Research Skills and will present a Dissertation (written over the summer). At Cergy-Pontoise, students are required to choose their major either in Business and Taxation Law or Law and Business Ethics. Classes are taught by academics and practising lawyers or other professionals thus promoting real engagement with the legal community. In addition to core law modules, and depending on the chosen specialisation, students have classes on contract law, company law, compliance, litigation, IP law.
