English Law and French Law/Master 1 (Matrise) University of Exeter

Undergraduate

While studying the dual qualification LLB English Law and French Law/Master 1 (Maîtrise en Droit) at the University of Exeter you will spend your first three years in Exeter studying in English the necessary foundation subjects for the LLB. At the same time, each year, you will also study French as a foundation course, which is taught and assessed in French.

In your fourth year you will study at the University of Rennes 1 and follow the Master 1 (Maîtrise en Droit) programme. On successful completion you will obtain the dual qualification of LLB English Law and French Law (University of Exeter) and Master 1 (Maîtrise en Droit) (University of Rennes 1).

This dual qualification in English and French law will make you highly attractive to employers as it has become increasingly important for lawyers to understand and apply systems of law belonging to various legal traditions, especially with the harmonisation of legal systems between EU member states and the growing globalisation of legal practice.

All our undergraduate degree programmes are accredited by the Law Society and have a series of compulsory modules which give you exemption from the academic stage of professional training in the UK. On graduation you can proceed to the Solicitors’ Legal Practice Course or Bar Professional Training Course.

In addition to being exempt from the academic stages of professional training in the England and Wales, graduates of the LLB English Law and French Law/Master 1 (Maîtrise en Droit) will have completed a French Masters degree in additional to their Exeter LLB. Graduates can then study for Certificat d'aptitude à la profession d'avocat (the French equivalent of the English LPC / BPTC).
