This course is based on general objectives and on the content of both Faculties’ Master’s programmes, with the addition of a bilingual character and a national scope.

This course opens the door to a wide range of professional activities. It provides access in particular to placements as a lawyer or notary and also prepares students for various legal professions practised by public administrations, the courts, private companies and international organisations. Other positions, for example in the sectors of culture, politics or business management, are also accessible.
