Sorbonne-Assas International Law School
In 2011, University Paris 2 Panthéon-Assas decided to launch an ambitious internationalisation program, notably through the creation of several campuses, branded « Sorbonne-Assas International Law School », throughout the world: Dubai, Paris, Mauritius and Singapore. Sorbonne-Assas International Law School aims at preparing the future financial and legal directors, managers of holdings or big companies, or their counsels, to their positions.
The School offers different types of program:
- LL.M in International Business Law in Dubai, Paris, Mauritius and Singapore. The LL.M is a diploma issued by the University (“Diplôme d’université” DU).
- A Bachelor of Laws (LL.B) in Mauritius. The LL.B is a diploma issued by the University (“Diplôme d’université” DU).
- An Executive Education program in Singapore, with seminars on request, tailored to educate and enhance the skills of lawyers, managers and in-house counsels in specific legal fields related to International Business.
- A Short Program in March and a Summer Course in July, taking place in Singapore.
Whether in Dubai, Paris, Mauritius or Singapore, all programs are taught in English, by Professors of Law from University Paris 2 Panthéon-Assas and professionals acting in the legal field coming from France, Europe, Asia and Africa. All programs strongly focus on case-studies and deepening of key subjects in a transversal and pluridisciplinary perspective.
The LL.M program prepares students and professionals to master important cross-borders mergers or financial transactions, funding, restructuring, LBO, financial engineering, and setting-up of industrial projects. These transactions are particularly interesting as they raise many difficulties and lead to the adoption of innovative solutions. Their study and the analysis of the legal, financial, and accounting issues they raise are particularly formative. The student or the professionals will tackle with different viewpoints and in a very interactive way the contracts, the guarantees, the funding or the settling of international trade dispute, just to quote key areas.
The LL.B. Bachelor of Laws (Mauritius Campus) is a 3-years program dedicated to HSC / BAC graduates. It offers a unique blend of Common law, Civil law, Mauritian law and International Law. By emphasizing on core business and international legal issues, it provide an in-depth view of key legal subjects and is undoubtedly a strong basis for any legal career.
