Director of studies


Semesters 1 and 2 aim at giving students a thorough knowledge of the private and public aspects of international and European legal issues.
The programme offers a comparative perspective, focuses on methodology with a view to providing the students with the tools needed to hold positions as lawyers in an international and European context.
A study trip to Brussels is organised for students to discover the European Institutions.

Semesters 3 and 4 aim at giving students a thorough knowledge of international economic legal issues. According to the French grading system, the master’s degree is a national diploma recognised in the European Union countries and which is equivalent to a Legum Magister (LL.M.). The program focuses mainly on the study of the World Trade Organization, of the European Union in an economic perspective and of international economic development. The MINTEC also aims at providing students with some basic knowledge of international law, contracts and markets regulations. Another study trip will be organised as part of this programme.

The two semesters are composed of mandatory courses.
Two tracks are available: the Research track and the Professional track.

  • Students opting for the Research track must write a master’s thesis. When the programme is successfully completed, students who have chosen this track may apply for a PhD.
  • Students opting for the Professional track must do an internship (minimum 2 months eq. 308 hrs) and write a report.
