This four-year bilingual course is a collaboration with the University of Strasbourg. You will graduate with two law degrees: an LLB studied at Leicester and the Maîtrise de Droit “Droits Français et Anglaise” from Strasbourg. Studying for two years in France permits you to gain a specialisation in private, corporate, or public European law at maîtrise level. Our well-established course is designed for bilingual students and is run jointly by the University of Leicester and the University of Strasbourg. The first two years of your course is spent here in Leicester, leading to the award of the LLB degree (conferred at the end of your time in Strasbourg). You then move to the Université de Strasbourg for a further two years. Successful completion of the programme there culminates in the award of a Maîtrise de Droit with the designation 'Droits Français et Anglais'. You will also gain a specialisation in private, corporate, or public European law. Your transition to study in Strasbourg is supported by a non-examined bespoke French law conversion module and you have access to optional additional courses with Languages at Leicester (for French) or the English Language Teaching Unit (for English). During the 3rd and final year of the degree in France, you will pay French university course fees. When you graduate you will be awarded with two qualifying law degrees: LLB and Maîtrise. These qualifications will reflect your competence in English, French, and European law. The Maîtrise is similar to the LLB in that it qualifies you for the professional examinations in France. Strasbourg is the home of European integration. You will study within walking distance of the World Heritage Site of the Grande Île, the official seat of the European Parliament and the European Court of Human Rights. Your bilingualism and proficiency in multiple legal systems will make you a perfect candidate for employment within European governmental bodies. As many leading law firms have branches in other countries or undertake cross-border work, and Strasbourg is the host of many international organisations of the highest order, this course will give you a distinct competitive advantage when beginning your legal career.
