LL.M.

1 year

10 courses of 10 hours each. Each course will be paired with a seminar of 10 hours. The program will be scheduled to allow professionals to attend easily all courses. Our ambition is to schedule the program on block periods of three days, two weeks a month.

The program will concentrate on case studies and deepen key legal subjects from a transversal and pluridisciplinary perspective.

Case studies are particularly interesting as they raise many difficulties and can lead to innovative solutions. Dealing with case studies and the understanding of the legal, financial and accounting issues they raise can be extremely worthy in terms of education. The students will tackle with different viewpoints, in a very interactive way contracts, guarantees and the funding or settling of international trade dispute, just to quote key areas. When appropriate, role-playing pedagogies will be used to stimulate controversial debates
