The LLM in Paris is an innovative suite of Master of Laws programmes, which are taught in English by Queen Mary academics with prominent visiting lecturers.

Developed by the Centre for Commercial Law Studies (CCLS) an LLM undertaken in Paris will lead to a prestigious Queen Mary University of London qualification.

You may opt for an LLM in International Business Law or a specialised LLM in the following areas:

  • Banking and Finance Law
  • Energy and Natural Resources Law
  • Intellectual Property Law
  • Comparative and International Dispute Resolution
  • Technology, Media and Telecommunications Law (Please note that TMT specialists have the opportunity to combine with Distance Learning modules).

Each LLM will provide you with in-depth immersion in commercial law from both comparative and international perspectives, within a common law framework. They 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, CCLS aims to better prepare contemporary lawyers for an increasingly globalised world.

CCLS in Paris brings together a unique community of students from all over the world, from a diverse range of legal backgrounds and experience. You will have the opportunity to choose from a wealth of specialist topics, take different approaches to your learning, and meet students and academics from across the range of commercial law disciplines offered in Paris.

One of the distinctive features of the LLM in Paris programme is its flexible structure, designed to facilitate your completing 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).

If you are a student of the Paris Bar School (EFB) you may complete the taught element of your studies within the Spring Term for validation as part of your training (PPI) from January to June. You are required to sit the relevant exams in July and remain a registered student, submitting your dissertations towards the end of the year in which you enrolled. In this way, you can complete an LLM in International Business Law parallel with your Bar School commitments.

Learning and teaching

You will learn through direct interaction with lecturers using a variety of teaching and learning strategies, including traditional and interactive lectures, small group teaching, seminar sessions, tutorials and e-learning. The taught element in Paris usually involves class sizes of no more than 30. The classes are designed to generate informed discussion around set topics, and may involve student presentations, group exercise and role-play as well as open discussion.

Assessment

Taught modules are usually assessed by unseen written examinations of 2.5 hours but, in certain cases other assessment methods may be used, such as in class presentations, or assessment entirely based on course essays. This is in addition to the compulsory dissertation.

Dissertation

All Paris LLM students have to carry out research to complete a dissertation of 15,000 words. For this purpose they have access to a variety of legal resources and receive training on how to use them. An individual dissertation supervisor is allocated for each student.
