The "2+2" double degree is an excellent course in French law and English law offered by Aix-Marseille University (AMU) and the University of Kent. The course lasts for four years and allows students who have just passed their baccalaureate to complete the first two years of study at the Faculty of Law and Political Science, AMU in Aix-en-Provence and the following two years at Kent Law School, University of Kent, Canterbury, United Kingdom.
At the end of the course, students receive a double degree:
- A Bachelor's degree and a Master's degree in International and European Law, awarded by AMU
- An LLB ("Bachelor of Laws") awarded by theUniversity of Kent. Which is equivalent to a Master 1 in France.
This double degree is highly valued on the job market as it allows students to embark on legal and judicial careers in either of the two countries.
Finally, in order to perfect these studies in law and to have a complete and even more valuable training in the working world, the students can continue on a Master 2 in France or an LLM in England.
