Hi Yong, I had a look at the Sorbonne page and it seems to me that the program is entirely in French. There is also a ne LLM Program at Assas paris 2 but thats aslo in French. If you know French its not a problem of course.

You should apply to Sciences-Po Paris (Institut d'Etude Politique de Paris) Master degree which is by far one of the most respected prestigious elite school in France, often refered to as the "French Harvard". (Sorbonne is just appealing for foreigners because of its famous name). Its Law program is excellent.
Most classes are taught in English and French.
Moreover Sciences-Po Paris has double diploma program with Columbia, Cornell and London School of Economics...
Be aware that every law student at the Sorbonne dreams of going to Sciences-Po Paris...

Sorry, but just about every statement made by igal is silly. The "French Harvard", that would be Ecole Normale Superieure or Ecole Polytechnique. Sciences-Po is not a law school, therefore is not accredited to grant law degrees. That's why you can't name a single lawyer or law professor who received a *law* degree from Sciences-Po. Sorbonne also has joint degrees (law and otherwise) with Columbia, Cornell, as well as... you guessed it, Sciences-Po. Make no mistake about it, the top law schools in France are Sorbonne and Assas. Period.

I disagree a little, Ecole Normale Sup and Polytechnique are not relevant (eventhough they're the best) because they don't offer any law program !!

Having graduate from both the Sorbonne and Sciences Po, I think the 2 are great, but different.
It is true that if you want a "regular" law degree, Sciences Po degree is not one. However its "Master" has an excellent reputation and no employer will ever criticize you for having chosen Science Po instead of the Sorbonne or Assas. Actually, classes in Sciences Po are smaller, you have more homework, more international students, so really you'll have fun.
But it remains a general degree (economic law, regulation...check at their website which has an english version), if you want to really specialize in a specific area (for instance taxation), then you should prefer the Sorbonne or Assas.
I'm currently applying to LLM programs in the US and it seems that both have a strong international reputation, so whatever school you choose I promise you'll enjoy it !

Does anyone know if there is an LLM program in Paris that is instructed in English? It appears that the Sorbonne and Assas programs are entirely in French. Is this true?

Sorry to post again, but the LLM-Guide listing of the Sorbonne program states that instruction is in French and English. Has anyone confirmed this?

The Sorbonne LLM program is entirely in French. There is an intensive legal French class for those who feel they need brushing up (taught in French, of course).

Thanks poiu! You are right that the language of instruction is French only. The Sorbonne listing has been changed. edit

Is anybody can tell me if Science Po offers Master in History or do i have to apply to other universities that specialize in History. Thank you for your response!

Hi Isa !
History isn't Sciences Po's speciality, therefore the "regular" master offers just a few specific courses in history, but you'll be required to take other courses (economy, politics...).

You could be more interested in applying to the special research master in "history and political theary" (XXth century), but try and find out if the topics offered suit you.

Sciences Po is a great school, but tough (a lot of work, especially oral presentations, hard for international students if their're French is not fluent). I advise you to apply to regular universities for the variety of topics they offer, plus you'll have less homework and more time to enjoy Paris, it would be useless to come over here and spend all your time in the library.

Don't hesitate if you have further questions.
Good luck through the admission process !

Hi Lisa

Yes Sciences-Po Paris has the best Master Degree in contemporary History ( Centre d histoire du XX siecle). Definitely a very good choice.

It seems to be 6.000 euros (tuitions), concerning the living expenses it's really difficult to say. It depends if you want to rent a studio, if you want a one bedroom...and if you want to leave near the Sorbonne or not (it's one of the most expensive place of the city).

First, yes tuition is 6 000 euros, and if you're lucky to get a room at the Cite Universitaire ( http://www.ciup.fr/ ), it's anywhere between 282 euros and 580 euros a month, depending on your student status.

Speaking of tuition, French institutions are learning from the Anglo-American model and have really increased their tuition for foreign students. Sciences Po recently increased its tuition to around 5 000 euros. It's still cheap by American standards, but for French students, it's basically free. French schools, like their Anglosaxon counterparts, know that foreigners are willing to pay for the name. But if the return on your investment is good, why not? Everyone wins.

Hi, I got my master from Paris II (which is, with Paris I, the best law school in France). Why you don't want to get a master's degree (before- DEA or DESS, now they are changing names)? I got it two years ago (in international law), paid about 300 euros per year, being a foreign student. You're studying with the French, it's not a "special" LL.M. for foreigners..
