Toulouse European School of Law (TESL), an innovative approach to legal teaching, means to train jurists in European law right from their first year.

  • What makes TESL innovative:

• It relies on double programs or double degrees organized in partnership with European university (14 double degrees with partner universities from 8 countries),
• Mobility becomes an essential part of training for law :
• It offers training for two different law systems to develop students’ capacity to compare and connect,
• It requires multilingual competences in order to keep law and national cultures connected,
• It enriches the training in European law with a European cultural approach.

  • TESL relies on:
• University networks, particularly those developed by UT1 Capitole through double degrees of diplomas,
• Networks of legal practitioners in Europe particularly developed through the network of the European cities of Law.
• Corporation networks UT1 Capitole has been developing for long.
