Course summary

This innovative, 18-month bilingual programme offers you the opportunity to combine Queen Mary University of London’s LLM in International Business Law with the Université Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne’s LLM in French and European Law. This is a unique opportunity to study international and comparative business law in French and English at two renowned institutions.

  • Gain two globally respected LLMs – and international expertise
  • Gain an internship with a law firm or the legal department of a company
  • Benefit from our excellent partnerships with Parisian law firms and other legal institutions
  • Visits to institutions such as the European Court of Human Rights and European Commission
  • Become part of the active international alumni networks of both institutions

What you'll study

You’ll begin this Double LLM with a compulsory four-day induction period in Paris in January, so you feel well-prepared to start of the programme.

You’ll have a flexible range of modules on international business law taught by Queen Mary at the University of London Institute in Paris (ULIP) campus.

At the start of the second semester in September, you’ll join the Université Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne’s induction and select your modules for that semester. You’ll follow the French and European Law stream of the Sorbonne’s LLM and take French as a Foreign Language and Legal French classes to improve your French language writing and legal research skills. You will also have opportunities to visit international legal institutions such as the European Court of Human Rights, the European Commission and the Court of Justice of the European Union.

With the Sorbonne’s supervision and the support of both institutions, you’ll secure a three-month internship before your third semester. The internship is generally in-house or with a law firm, though other legal contexts are also recognised. Students generally take their internships in France but internships conducted in French elsewhere in Europe may be acceptable.

Career paths

Whether you are embarking on your legal career or are already an accomplished practitioner, both the Sorbonne and Queen Mary will fully support your professional development throughout your LLM. Our Professional Development team will help you to secure your internship and produce the necessary paperwork.

Through our networks and alumni, as well as organising events in Paris, we facilitate your integration into the wider legal community in Paris and meet prospective employers.

As this is a new programme, our first cohort have yet to graduate. However, CCLS graduates from our Paris LLM have gone on to work for firms such as LPA-CGR Avocats, Paris or act as in-house counsel in companies such as HSBC and Sanofi. Others now act as consultants to the European Commission and OECD.
