Considered as France’s first Law University and very well-known among many foreign countries, Paris-Panthéon-Assas University is dedicated to upholding the tradition from which it arose, preserving, yet ever-striving to raise its level of excellence with respect to all fields of Laws.
The LL.M. (Legum Magister – Master in Laws) in International Business Law includes 210 hours of teaching and accommodates approximately 30 trainees over a period of one academic year.
The seminars deals mainly with practical case studies and certain key subjects, with a pluridisciplinary focus. The LL.M. prepares students and professionals for operations such as large acquisitions or market transactions, crossborder mergers, complex financing, restructuring, LBOs, financial engineering, and industrial projects.
The LL.M. (Legum Magister – Master in Laws) AWArDS, which is held entirely in English and is devoted to international (commercial and investment) arbitration and the settlement of international commercial disputes, is an ideal combination of lectures given by academics specializing in arbitration or international litigation, as well as experienced and renowned practitioners.
With the support of this high-quality teaching team, the lectures will be divided into core courses on arbitration, specialization courses, including courses on some of the major sectors involved in international arbitration and dispute resolution, elective courses and practical workshops.
