LLM in Paris


legaldiva

I'm an American law student, and I'd like to pursue an LLM in Paris at Pantheon-Assas after graduation (yes, I speak french). My only question is how to pay for it. Can I file a FAFSA for student loans to go abroad? Will a private lender give me money?

Thanks!

go to the following website: www.iefc.com. They have Federal Stafford Loans as well as bank loans available through Bank of American and Citibank. The program is specifically designed for US citizens wanting to study abroad long term or short term. Hope this helps. Best of Luck.

Excellent; thank you so much!

My next question is if anyone knows whether this particular program is really competitive ... or whether the LLM programs in general are extra competitive?

LLM in paris is very competitive, but llm in general is not so much. If you decide to do an llm (since you already hold a JD im assuming) in the US, then its not as selective.

However, if you decide to enroll in Europe, and I believe you want to take that route, then LLM is a bit selective depending on the school you apply to (like any other program). If you have excellent grades plus work experience, then I would apply to the paris program. Since they are mostly seeking mid-career students.

The best way to describe it would be: imagine applying to an MBA program or Executive MBA at Tier 1 schools.

This might help: the sister school of the paris program is Columbia University. This might help out regarding its stature.

But theres no harm in applying, so just go for it. Depending on your grades, you might want to look into other universities as well. If you are seeking French Speaking Universities, try Geneva.

Does anyone know why there's such a discrepancy between Assas and Sorbonne in terms of tuition for the LL.M.? As I understand it, tuition at Assas is around 2,100 euros whereas at Sorbonne it is 6,000 euros.

Also, does anyone know the practical differences between the LL.M. program at Assas and the LL.M. program at Sorbonne? The Sorbonne program seems very well organized and appears to include a 3-month placement component. It is difficult to find comparable information on the LL.M. program at Assas, though I understand the university has an exceptional reputation. As between the two, is one more difficult to get into?

Vigilantee311, are you an alumnus/alumna of Paris II - Assas ? Im sure you are

I graduated from Hec and Paris X Nanterre, and I dont think Assas is widely considered as a best law school than Paris I Sorbonne.

Paris 1-Sorbonne is a very prestigious law school in France, probably better than Assas in International/Commercial law. For example, Paris 1-Sorbonne has a joint degree program JD/maîtrise with Columbia Law School and Cornell and an LLB/maîtrise joint degree with King's College. There is also a joint degree program Paris I/SciencesPo/Cornell/Columbia Law School called "dess droit de la globalisation économique".

However I do agree that Assas was well-know for its far-right student activism and violence.

By the way, Nicolas Sarkozy graduated from Paris X-Nanterre (another mistake in your post ?)

Hi I am a student of the DESS droit des affaires et fiscalité of Paris 1 Sorbonne. is this the programm you are talking about?
because if it is I can tell you that it is very open to foreign students provided you can attest being (quite) fluent in french and english and having good marks of course. about one third of the current students are from abroad. maybe more than that actually I should check.

you will probably have an interview either in Paris or by phone if you cannot come to Paris. I can ask exactly how it went to a foreign student of my class if you want me to.
where are you from again?

http://www.uejf.org/uejf_detail.php?sid=&id_art=593&id_type=3


I think you're not being fair to Assas for that matter.

First, those "far-right student", let's say it plainly: neonazis are what 30 students out thousands. They are really a minority, well hated, and easily recognizable with their air-foce hairdo, military shoes and other accessories (like the famous as I called it Saint-Exupery's scarf).

And I should know, I've been for half of my studies in Paris XIII Villetaneuse and half in Assas so let's say I experience the two "extremes" (Villetaneuse is located in a rough "banlieue" and is clearly leaning on the far-left with now fundamentalism issues).

One think you can say for sure about Assas is that the amount of silver-spoon stark-spoiled students with an arrogant caricatural "Paris" mind and full designers clothes has no match in France! But that similar to some private US law schools.

As for the reputation, I totally agree on the fact that Assas and Sorbonne, especially internationally, speaking, are well reknowed.

Each one has qualities, depending on the area of law and the faculty (Public Law better in Sorbonne, Private in Assas, International Business for Sorbonne, IP/IT for Assas).

But without any prejudice (and without speaking of others great law schools like Nanterre or Sceaux which has an excellent reputation but not internationally) it's perfectly true that Assas has an overall "better reputation".

When you think of a Law School you think Assas and for recruiters that have not a great knowledge of specific diplomas Assas always ring a bell. Is it legitimate? Certainly not entirely but that's a fact.

However the 2 law schools are really similar and share the same premises for the Master 2 (Panthéon facilities not practical but great). To give a pregnant example some middle law firm that received tons of resumé (market is bad) and cannot possibly read them all have sometimes devise a rather direct way of choosing: eliminate all resumés that are not Assas or Sorbonne.

PS : I don't think it's very relevant to point the Law School of politicians as most of them like Nicolas Sarkozy almost never practiced and the true sources of power are institutions like ENA, Science PO & co.

About testing your level of French, you should look up your local Alliance Francaise. You may be able to take something kind of equivalent to the English TOEFL there. There are currently a couple of tests offered, the TCF and DELF/DALF, which are widely accepted by universities. The TCF system is a bit simpler (just take the test), whereas for the DALF, you must first take the TCF or DELF to even have access to that test. I've been told that most universities now accept the TCF. The TCF offers several "mandatory" and several "optional" sections. I believe you must take all of them for university access.

Unfortunately, not all Alliances Francaises offer these tests, and even those that do may only offer them a couple of times a year. There is also a not-small fee, something nearing $200 I think. If you are going to be in France sometime soon, you may wish to arrange to do the test there.

Good luck!
