I'm planing to pursue my LLM degree in 2020 with the support of a law firm.
The name of the degree is crucial part to be recognised and accredited to practice law in my country. Therefore, I have some curiosity on the new course offered by Paris 1, namely 'Sorbonne LL.M. Business Law Certificate'. (The like to program's webpage can find below)
It sounds nice and elegant but ... What degree it actually is ?
An LLM ? Or Business law certificate?
Sometimes it also referred as 'Sorbonne Business Law Certificate for Foreign Lawyers LL.M'
Which is make it more like a 'training certificate' than an LLM degree.
(In my country, certificate of practice, training, or just certificate, even from top prominent law school cannot use as credential to practice law. So no difference than just an LLB holder)
The other LLM programs, offered by Paris 1, have the name that common and easily to recognise as LLM degrees.
(-LL.M of French Law and European Law / LL.M of French Law, European Law and International Business Law
-LL.M Business Law, Arab World and Near East)
With the clear amd no misleading degree names, it should benefit the international student to use the degree for the future career.
Anyone have the same curiosity as mind ? Or it's just the way they named there program?
