What is more, it provides theoretical and practical knowledge in French and European Union law for young lawyers, legal researchers and practitioners.
The programme consists of intensive French and European Union law courses taught in French: the main French and EU public and private law course units, special prior doctoral seminars of methodology. In addition, active participation in the programme gives an opportunity to improve French legal language skills.
