LLB Law with French Law (M141)

This four-year LLB programme (M141) leads to the award of a Bachelor of Laws honours degree from University College London together with a Diploma or Certificate in French Law. Students spend the third year at a French University.

Students are responsible for maintaining (or if necessary improving) their French language skills in order to meet the academic demands of the degree. They are not normally allowed to transfer to another LLB programme at UCL.

Years 1, 2, and 4 of the programme are taken at UCL and are similar to years 1, 2, and 3 of the three-year LLB programme (M100).

Year 1
Contract Law
Criminal Law
Property Law I
Public Law
European Legal Studies (French) I

In year 1, M141 and M100 students take the same subjects, including a short introduction to legal method at the beginning of the year. M141 students also receive a year-long introduction to French law, legal institutions, and legal terminology, taught in French.

Aix Marseille
Year 2
European Legal Studies (French) II
European Union and Human Rights Law
Property Law II
Tort Law

In year 2, M141 and M100 students again take the same subjects except that M141 students take European Legal Studies (French) II instead of Jurisprudence and Legal Theory.

Year 3
Study in France (see below)

Year 4
Four options

The options are the same as those available to students in year 3 of the LLB (M100), except that M141 students may take Jurisprudence and Legal Theory (which is compulsory for M100 students in year 2) as one of their options in year 4.

Study in France
Students spend the third year studying for a Diploma or Certificate in French Legal Studies at one of UCL’s partner universities in France. Our current partners are Université Paul Cézanne and the University of Paris II (Panthéon-Assas). Students are assigned to a university in France. Requests for assignment to a particular university will be considered.

During the year in France, students have a personal tutor responsible for their academic and social welfare at the French university. The tutor helps students choose their subjects and approves their choices.

Prior to Departure
In year 2, students are provided with information to prepare for their year abroad concerning financial considerations, passports and visas, availability of private accommodation, local education authority documentation, travel arrangements, and insurance. The overseas university will also send information concerning term dates, registration, and enrolment. During year 2, students have opportunities to mix socially with fourth-year students who have completed their year abroad and with current visiting students from overseas universities.
