Meeting the Grande Ecole du Droit

On February 13th, the Jean Monnet university welcomed students from different high schools and curious parents willing to discover the courses our university offers. From 10a.m to 7p.m, with the support of two former students and, from 10a.m to 1p.m, with Pr. Véronique Magnier, director of the course, more than thirty students from the “Grande Ecole du Droit”, from every promotion, were happy to answer every single question the potential upcoming students had, and reminded them of the opportunities this excellent diploma provides.

“I really enjoyed the event this year. It is really interesting to be able to talk to the high school students and prospective GED students. Seeing those students so attentive and willing to come to the “Grande Ecole du Droit” is really pleasing. The atmosphere is cheerful and everyone is really motivated” Jasmine Merdji-Larue, GED 1.

In total, it is no less than eighty potential candidates, coming sometimes from afar, who showed their interest for the “Grande Ecole du Droit”, eager to follow a unique legal course. It was also a great moment to meet the “Grande Ecole du Droit” students’ families, happily coming to simply salute us.

Created in 2009 by Pr. Véronique Magnier, the “Grand Ecole du Droit” (GED) is an internationally oriented legal Diploma in business law, gathering thirty students in each promotion. The classes take place during a four-year period, the last of which takes the form of a Master of Laws (LL.M.) in an Anglophone university chosen by the student. Being the sole French course to provide four degrees in four years (Bachelor degree, master degree, GED degree and LL.M.), The “Grande Ecole du Droit” also has a professionalizing feature with the partnership with EY Société d’avocats.

To apply to the “Grande Ecole Du Droit”, the whole procedure is on the Admission Post-Bac (APB) platform. All you have to do is choose “licences” in the type of course, “Sceaux” for the city, choose “DU Etudes Juridiques Comparatives Internationales” and fill in the file.
