Any confused with the name of the new LLM program at Paris 1 ?


Tylor989
All,

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?

Thank you

Just reviewed the post ! Thank you again :)

I understand that LLM offered by French university is not considered as a Master in French legal system. However, the French University Diploma (DU) namely "LLM" still recognized in my country as advance legal education.

So in my case, Im confuse by the name 'Sorbonne LL.M. Business Law Certificate' whether it's a real LLM degree (DU equivalent) or just a 'certificate' as its name also mentioned.

Hope someone could help me clarify this point :)

Thailand, So in my jurisdiction, advance degrees e.g. LLM, M2 in the French system, J.D, and Ph.D in law are considered as advanced education which enables as to the market.
An LLB holder also can practice law but with 'recognized' LLB or other types of advanced education, the market value of that particular lawyer is dramatically increased.

So my point is I'm not sure if "Sorbonne LL.M. Business Law Certificate" is an LLM degree? Or Business law training certificate?
