I was assigned to do this particular mission on behalf of my entire class. As you already know (or not, that’s not a shame!), the students of the « Grande Ecole du droit » are going abroad to study an LL.M during the 4th year of their education. In order to be accepted in the universities, we must, above all, work on our applications, which include the redaction of personal statements, résumés, letters of recommendation, transcripts etc.
Who am I ? This is the question that every student who attended the 4th edition of the LL.M Roadshow had in mind at the end of the conference.

After two years of legal studies, you can’t wait to put in practice during an internship what you have learnt. For your training, you have to decide whether you want to work in a law firm or a company. I did my internship in a company’s legal department.
Why would you choose to work in a company ?

As a former student within the GED and part of the first promotion that this double-diploma had, I truly believe in my abilities to give advice to those who would like to study this subject when being in their last year of the Bachelor program.

When you get into the 3rd year at the University, you should already have some solid basics on how the French law system is made: you had some teachings in civil law, administrative and constitutional law and even criminal law. The 3rd year is oriented so that you broaden your legal background on a larger scale by having European and International law modules. Part of it is the Public International law program in which you study how supra-national rules are incorporated within the French legal framework.
