Entry requirements

Law graduates. The usual qualification for entry to the 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 specialist LLM taught courses. ◦Non-law graduates with good honours, that 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. International applicants: Students from outside of the UK help form a global community of Queen Mary students in Paris.

Course content

The LLM in Paris is an innovative Master of Laws programme, which is taught in English by Queen Mary academics with prestigious visiting lecturers.

Developed by the Centre for Commercial Law Studies (CCLS) this LLM will lead to a prestigious Queen Mary University of London qualification.

This course will provide you with in-depth immersion in commercial law from both comparative and international perspectives, within a common law framework. It will enable you to enhance your understanding of your own legal system, by giving you the tools to explore current commercial law issues from an international and comparative perspective. Ultimately, the course aims to better prepare contemporary lawyers for an increasingly globalised world.

One of the distinctive features of the LLM in Paris programme is its flexible structure, designed to enable you to complete the programme without having to interrupt your professional career. The taught elements are delivered in intensive daytime or evening classes, with the option to spread your studies over one year (full-time) or two years (part-time).
