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.
FEELING LIKE A REAL ENGLISH LAW STUDENT : TORT LAW (Teacher : Mr Maitre)
It definitely sounds English… and not French at all… But by discovering it you will understand why it will be the course you are going to love.
What is Tort law? A body of rights, obligations, and remedies that is applied by courts in civil proceedings to provide relief for persons who have suffered harm from the wrongful acts of others. The person who sustains injury or suffers pecuniary damage as the result of tortious conduct is known as the plaintiff, and the person who is responsible for inflicting the injury and incurs liability for the damage is the defendant or tortfeasor.
In my opinion, it is one of the best courses that we are attending this year. On the one hand, it seems to be a “pure English class” because this course is also taught in every country applying Common-law. This is why I really felt like an English student by attending this class. English law appeared to be really easier than French law because the English law is largely based on logic. There are no multiple exceptions, everything is well organized and it makes it really simple to understand (I could even say “funny” but I guess most of you will not believe me, or at least not yet).
