  • AIMS

    To provide students from the University of Exeter and Dublin with training in French law at 1st cycle level.

    The study of foreign legal systems is nowadays fundamental to understand legal developments, to learn about transnational legal relations and to better evaluate national law.

    In addition, economic, social and political globalisation is accompanied by the development of transnational legal relations. This makes knowledge of foreign systems and their different modes of organisation, as well as their legal practices, indispensable.

    Furthermore, it is important to understand the role of the legal system in the development of the European Union.

    Finally, the development of transnational litigation requires today's lawyers to be familiar with foreign legal systems, certain foreign substantive laws and foreign modes of legal reasoning.
