Learning from the elders

The peculiar program of the Grand École du Droit (GED) encourages its students to choose at an early stage the legal field they want to study later on. Indeed, once we come back from our LLM year, we have to apply for our “Masters 2”, which mean that it’s necessary for us to know very early what we appreciate or not.
