Through an active partnership between CCLS and the Paris Bar School (EFB), we have established a unique arrangement whereby EFB students may study the LLM in International Business Law in Paris in parallel with their training for the Paris bar.
The Paris LLM programme qualifies as a Projet Pédagogique Individuel (PPI). EFB students choose 6 modules to study, and complete a dissertation in order to fulfil the requirements of the LLM and the PPI.
Besides obtaining a degree from a prestigious University like Queen Mary and improving my legal English, one of the main reasons I chose this LLM was the extremely convenient planning. I could finish all the LLM modules within the six-month period of the PPI (Projet Pédagogique Individuel) without having to take a gap year.

Dans le cadre de ma formation à l'Ecole du Barreau de Paris, j'ai décidé d'intégrer le LLM en droit des affaires internationales de Queen Mary Paris. Cette formation m'a en effet permis de compléter mon cursus par une expérience internationale dans une université de renom. En tant que future avocate en droit des affaires, il m'était indispensable d'acquérir les bases du droit anglais afin de répondre au mieux aux besoins d'une clientèle de plus en plus internationale. Cette expérience unique m'a ainsi beaucoup apporté tant sur le plan professionnel que personnel.
Clémence Lagorce, LLM International Business Law, Paris (2014/15)
Doing an LLM has always been part of my plans. One of the many advantages the LLM with the renowned Queen Mary University of London, offered in Paris, was the fact that I could do this LLM within my Paris Bar School training (Projet Pédagogique Individuel) and hence complete the taught elements within 6 months. It is true that doing all the modules within one semester required some discipline and implied at times a considerable workload, but was definitely worthwhile. The LLM with Queen Mary allowed me to significantly improve both my linguistic and English legal skills, which is of great help on a daily basis in my professional life as a lawyer and was also a unique personal experience with great fellow students with whom I shared a very good time.

Are you an EFB student and want to apply for the Paris LLM?
Prospective and current EFB students apply for the LLM through the standard online application form.
We strongly recommend that students apply in good time, even before your place at the EFB is secured. There is no application fee involved. Information regarding dates and deadlines can be found here.
We further recommend that students take the English language requirements of the programme into consideration well before the deadline, to ensure that you have arranged your test and acquired the results in time to guarantee your place. Note that it is possible to apply for the LLM without including English language test scores at the outset. Depending on the other elements in your dossier, any offer made would be conditional until such time as you then upload your test results for review, which may be after the application deadline but must be before the start of the academic year in Paris.
