Bachelor's Degree in Law

Droit, Economie, Gestion

Academic year : 2017 / 2018

last update 04/12/2012

    Course objectives and characteristics

    The Bachelor's Degree in Law provides general training in law through progressive acquisition of methodology and fundamental legal knowledge. The aim is for students to establish a basic legal knowledge allowing them to build on these basics in order to integrate the professional world at the end of the course.

    A progression of fundamental elements is therefore organised from the outset through to the final year. As well as this, in the framework of the law course the final year puts the finishing touches on the effort made since year 1: the students who have acquired the basics in general training can develop the vocational character of their course of study by taking part in more integrated work placements, or by exposing themselves to more specialised disciplines.

    The third year is structured around three courses of study: the "Law" course of study, which provides the students with the necessary groundwork for continuing with a Master's Degree in business law or public law; the JASAC course of study - Legal Officer of Cultural Structures and Activities - which aims to train those who have different skills in the legal sector and in the cultural sector; and finally the "In-House Lawyer" course of study which aims to give a tertiary tendency to the training. The latter two of the three courses of study are both carried out in a University Institute for Vocational Training.

     

    Course structure

    The degree is spread over three years, or over six academic semesters.
    Each year is made up of two teaching semesters, at the end of which exams are organised. The lessons, Tutorials (known as TD) and Practical Seminars (or TP), are organised into Teaching Units (TU). Some subjects are compulsory, others are chosen from a range of options. These optional papers offer students the chance to study topics of interest from the course in greater detail and/or to discover topics from other disciplines and to explore inter-disciplinary approaches.

    The first year of the degree (L1) enables students to acquire the basics, the second year (L2) explores these themes in more detail and helps students choose their future path, and the final year (L3) marks the beginning of specialisation.

    Accompagnement pédagogique

    Students receive academic support in various forms throughout their studies :

    • an induction course before starting the academic year in L1,
    • Access to online services (academic portal, course resources, personal online progress monitoring),
    • A designated supervising tutor,
    • regular proficiency tests to determine if personalised help is needed, with the implementation of disciplinary support time,
    • help with identifying possible careers and areas of employability, by means of the Professional Personal Project (PPP),
    • Advice on reorientation, provided by the teaching team and the PIOLE centre (Information and Orientation for Pupils and Students),
    • Opportunities to obtain short-term professional skills (bachelor's degree),
    • Opportunities to obtain diplomas in modern languages and ICT during the course (CLES, C2I).

     

     

     

    Internship

    Teaching units can be supplemented by a work placement.

     

     

    Prospects

    Once the student has graduated, bearing in mind the general training in law which has been acquired, they may apply for a job in the professional private or public law sector or any other sector where the qualities of rigour and understanding of specific issues acquired in general legal training are appreciated. 

    Students from the University Institute for Vocational Training course of study have more vocational and more focused prospects.

    The course also allows students to register for various competitions, in particular for civil services, which require a "Bac + 3" level in order to compete.
