    The training is given by research professors from the Faculty of Law and Political Science (professors, lecturers), from a variety of disciplines - Law (private law and criminal science, public law, history of law and institutions, political science); Economics; Humanities (French language and literature, ethnology, etc.).

    In support of the team of research professors, professionals, contractual or temporary doctoral students, and PRAGs will also provide teaching in the form of tutorials or practical work.

    For help with homework and revision, supervision is provided by master's students and/or doctoral students from the Faculty of Law and Political Science.

    During L1-1, students benefit from

    • an adaptation of their Licence course and their academic activities,
    • advice in terms of methodology, organization of work time, organization of university life,
    • Remedial activities in fundamental disciplines,
    • refresher courses,
    • methodology workshops,
    • foreign language support,
    • help with homework and revision,
    • a personal interview to determine the student's position in the subject,
    • individual assessment of skills every six months.
  • Structure and organization

    The Programme d'Accompagnement Réussite en Licence (PARL) consists of offering students the opportunity to complete their law degree in 4 years instead of 3.
    To do this, the subjects that are normally taken during the first year of the degree are spread over two years (L1-1 then L1-2), plus additional subjects reserved for PARL students.

    Each year is composed of 2 semesters to which a certain number of ECTS credits are attached (12 credits per semester in L1-1; then 18 credits per semester in L1-2).

    During L1-1, PARL students have "shared" courses with L1 students for all the "theoretical" subjects of L1, i.e. lectures without TD. Students also have courses and tutorials reserved for their programme (such as introduction to law and refresher courses in general culture and literature).

    At the end of L1-1, to be admitted to L1-2, students must have validated a minimum of 12 credits, including at least 3 credits from UE 1.
    During L1-2, PARL students follow the same subjects as L1 students, and continue to benefit from specific pedagogical support and homework workshops.

    The passage to L2 finally requires the validation by capitalisation or compensation of the 60 credits corresponding to the accumulation of the two years: L1-1 and L1-2 PARL.
