    The International and European Law major intends to introduce students to the methods of research and reasoning specific to international and European law. The challenge here is twofold: to strengthen the theoretical knowledge across the full spectrum of issues within the disciplinary set  to provide a solid technical training to students wishing to acquire legal expertise in European or international law.

    The objective is to provide students with a scientific capital and a general culture;The aim is to enable them to move as smoothly as possible in an environment characterised by increasing normative diversity and complexity. The training provided within the International Law and European Law degree aims to prepare students to enter the job market in good conditions.


    • Initial training
    • Continuing education : without timetable adjustment
    • .

    This course is open from the 1st year Master's degree.

    Access is conditional on the submission of an application.


    The teaching of Master 1 (common core 360h CM and 72 h TD) has been organised in order to allow students to freely choose one of the six typical courses proposed the following year. This is why all the compulsory subjects for students (with or without TD) are prerequisites for the standard courses. Concerning the transversal subjects, it appeared fundamental to offer students subjects related to international law and European law but proposed by other mentions. Similarly, in relation to the type courses, a particular effort of mutualisation of courses is made to maintain a certain coherence of the training.



    The course provides in-depth knowledge of international law, European law and European Union law, as well as domestic and comparative law, in various fundamental fields of intervention by public and private persons: economic activities (competition, trade), environmental protection, energy, public institutions (states, international organisations), humanitarian actions, human rights.

    The training ensures strong knowledge of legal issues and regimes as well as methodological skills enabling them to meet the common expectations of the various professional sectors in relation to international and European law
