Objectifs

Program’s Objectives

Launched in 2020, this program is a reflection of the University’s willingness to develop extend its law programs at the international level.

Developed on the model of a French licence (3-years diploma), this Bachelor of Laws (LL.B.) aims at providing students with a comprehensive training in the law and graduate first-rate legal minds.

Moreover, while the module titles are often very similar to the ones of the French “licence”, their content is adapted, in order to maintain coherence with the most relevant needs of the local contexts and to cater for the students’ best interest.

All courses are taught in English. The faculty is comprised of 75% of professors emanating from Paris-Panthéon-Assas University’s campus in France, who are supported by a solid core of legal experts from the region to enhance student learning by doing in the indigenous context where the program is offered.

The commitment to maintain a majority of French faculty from the mother campus is our priority, which ensures and supports our aim to transfer our institution’s best-practice and distinguished wealth of expertise and highlight our uniqueness in the legal tradition.
