Practice law in France


Azerty

Hey all,

I have an LL.B. and am about to finish my LL.M from a university in the Netherlands and am trying to figure out how to be able to work as a lawyer in France. I am confused because I've heard different things.

Is it true that one can sit the bar exam with only a Master 1 or do you need to also get a licence/bachelor?
Can you take the bar exam with only a Master 2?

I've heard that there is a special arrangement for specific Masters from Sciences Po. Doing their two-year Master in Droit économique or Carrières judiciaires et juridiques would give one access to the bar exam. Is this (still) true?

Thanks a lot!

Hi, if you have a Master 1 in Law from a French university, you can sit for the Bar Exam. At Sciences Po, however, a degree is awarded after having completed the Master 2. In theory, therefore, you have to wait until you have completed the two years of study. In practice, however, you can skirt around this by obtaining a M1 from a French university.

Hi all,

I have a similar question... I have an LLM in Economic, Social and Cultural Law but I don't have a basic law degree, my Bachelor is in Music. So, with a Bachelor of Music and an LLM (both from Ireland) what do I need to do to be able to practice in France?

I will really appreciate your help :D

Hi, you'd need a Masters in Law (M1) from a French university. PM me for more info if desired.
