Clarifications


Hello All.

I have just finished this LL.M. in International Business Law in Paris and would like to clarify some points before you register for the course.

The most important is that, regarding French law, this LL.M. is not considered a Master of Laws (despite the fact that the website of the Program says so).

This may pose you some big problems in France, mainly regarding a possible extension of your Visa in case you find a job in Paris after graduating.

More especifically: if you are not European, this LL.M. does not give you the right to stay in France to look for a job and, even if you find a job, it can be hard to change the type of your visa (from student to work permit), since legal counsels are not considered a profession "in tension" (métiers en tension) according to French government.

It means that, even if you get a job, it can be very hard to stay in France since this LL.M. is not considered a Master according to French legislation.

So be aware of the rules before registering.

I wish you all the best and good luck!
