Entry requirements

Law graduates

The usual qualification for entry to the Sorbonne-QMUL Double LLM programme is a degree in law, or a degree with a substantial law content, normally of at least upper-second class honours (or equivalent).

We consider every application on a case-by-case basis and anticipate that some applicants will be practising lawyers who have qualified either in France or their home jurisdiction and will have legal work experience, which will also be taken into account.

Non-law graduates

Non-law graduates may be considered on the basis of exceptional professional experience that directly relates to the LLM.

  • Non-law graduates with good honours, who have also obtained the equivalent of good honours in CPE and Bar Finals/Legal Practice examinations, or passed the solicitors’ qualifying examination, may qualify.
  • Law graduates with high 2.2 honours and at least five years professional legal experience may also qualify.

Students from outside of the UK help form a global community of Queen Mary and Sorbonne students in Paris. For detailed country specific entry requirements please visit the International section of our website.

Course content

The Sorbonne-QMUL Double LLM is an innovative, 18-month, bilingual programme which offers you the opportunity to benefit from combining the LLM programmes in Paris of:

  • an LLM in International Business Law with QMUL
  • an LLM in French and European Law with the Sorbonne.

Developed by the Centre for Commercial Law Studies (CCLS) at Queen Mary University of London (QMUL) and the Sorbonne Law School (Sorbonne), this double degree programme leads to two prestigious qualifications from two globally recognised institutions.
The aim is to provide students with a unique opportunity to study international and comparative business law; in two languages (French and English), with two renowned Institutions.

You will have the opportunity to study within both the British and French models of postgraduate education, as well as undertake tangible work experience, as part of an internship with a law firm, company or another legal context. You will develop a varied range of skills and knowledge, and experience different learning processes.
