    The aim of the course is to enable students to acquire theoretical competence in the law of the execution of sentences. The law of the execution of sentences must be considered as a discipline in its own right, which has gained its autonomy within the field of criminal law. The importance of the law of the execution of sentences is attested by the integration of the law of the execution of sentences within the proofs of the various competitions and examinations under the jurisdiction of the judiciary.

    The law of the execution of sentences has become an important part of the judicial system.

    It also aims to enable the various actors in the field of criminal law (JAPs, judges, prosecutors, lawyers, etc.) to give practical lessons in the enforcement of sentences;cution des peines (JAP, procureur de la République, SPIP, chef détablissement pénitentiaire…) to give a prison culture to the students.

Specificity of the course. Following a Master 1 "Private Law and Criminal Sciences", carried out within the Faculty of Law and Political Science of Aix-Marseille University, I had the opportunity to join the Master 2 "Law of the execution of sentences" in September 2018, directed by Professor Muriel Giacopelli. Beyond the rarity of the proposed course, which has only two equivalents on a national scale, the main assets of the training lie, in my opinion, in the quality of the teaching provided. Firstly, through theoretical training, provided by several specialists in the field, which proves to be essential for understanding the prison and judicial environments responsible for the execution of sentences. Secondly, thanks to cross-disciplinary teaching, common to several courses of the Master 2 Criminal Law, the training is in line with the knowledge acquired during the university course. Finally, the "Law of the execution of sentences" course offers several practical courses, taught by a wide variety of practising professionals (lawyers, judges and prosecutors, prison staff, associations). This approach has a double interest. On the one hand, it demonstrates the reality of professional practice, on the eve of taking a competitive examination, and thus possibly reinforces this choice. On the other hand, it approaches the law of the execution of sentences from a humanistic point of view, in order to better understand the real stakes and the problems linked to the discipline.

It is with great pride that I joined the Master 2 Law of the Execution of Sentences at the beginning of the 2019 academic year. We are received by Mrs GIACOPELLI who assures us that we will have to work hard but that we will come out of it full of assets to face the professional world and the civil service exams. We all look at each other, each one hoping to succeed in what he wanted: DSP, DPIP, CPIP, magistrate...

It is with great pride that I joined the Master 2 Law of the Execution of Sentences at the beginning of the 2019 academic year. We are received by Mrs GIACOPELLI who assures us that we will have to work hard but that we will come out of it full of assets to face the professional world and the civil service exams. We all look at each other, each one hoping to succeed in what he wanted: DSP, DPIP, CPIP, magistrate... Our year begins strongly, we meet a great man in the defence of human rights and the control of places of detention. And it is without a doubt that we will bear his name: we will be called the DELARUE Class. We followed theoretical courses, colloquiums, simulated public hearings, and interactions with professionals: public prosecutors, enforcement judges, prison clerks, directors of prison services, etc. It was my best academic year, both in terms of theory and pre-professional work and the results I obtained that year. This master's degree allowed me to perfect my criminal law, and more precisely the law of the application of sentences; secondly, to enrich my knowledge of practice thanks to the interventions of numerous professionals, and thirdly, it allowed me to be in total immersion for two months in a penitentiary establishment. Also, for those who are more passionate about the law of the execution of sentences, this M2 offered us the possibility to participate in a criminology seminar at the Luynes prison. This experience was rich, formative and full of meaning. Students aspire to concrete things and this professional M2 offers concrete things, practical things. But it is also concrete that it has enabled those who have completed it to integrate the Integrated Preparatory Class of the ENAP, to become Director of Penitentiary Services, Lawyer, Police Commissioner...
