Sciences Po for undergrad, Assas for M1 law in France (Need answers)


I'm a non-EU citizen, but planning to study and hopefully practice law in France in the future. I hold A-level qualifications. I'm planning to study at Sciences Po next year, and then apply to do M1 Law at either Assas or the Sorbonne.

My question is, is it possible to apply to do M1 Law at Assas or Sorbonne with a non-law undergrad degree from Sciences Po?

Thanks for anyone's help!

P.S Another question that I have - what does "droit à distance" mean?

Sciences Po is a bit frowned upon by Assas and the Sorbonne professors as it’s a « School » rather than an « University », however they recognize that it is a good school ! But they might (I think they will but I don’t know anyone who went from ScPo to Assas or the Sorbonne so I can’t say for sure), even upon accepting you, ask you to enter a Licence 3 rather than a Master 1. If that’s what happens however you’ll automatically be accepted in M1 in this university after you pass the L3, so it’s not a catastrophy if that is really what you want ! Once you’re in, you’re in until the end of M1 as long as you pass ! (For a M2 the competition is rough but being already in the University helps tremendously)
You should however take as much law-related classes as you can during your undergrad, it would help a lot

While what Christelle said is true, it’s mostly true for Master 2, the competition for M1 is much less difficult and I know plenty of foreign students that went into very good M1. If you have a French education (that will be Sciences po in your case) there’s no reason no M1 (or most surely L3 as I said) would take you!

I’d add that Sciences Po is a perfectly good choice to conduct law studies ! While The Academia (TM) might not like it very much, it is a very good school with good degrees and it’s really recognized by professionals ! You can very well stay in Sciences Po during the entirety of your cursus and have an awesome career ! While Assas and the Sorbonne are indeed better for law studies, ScPo is a very good challenger, you should not completely exclude staying there.

« Droit à distance » would depend on the context but I’ll say that it is about a degree that you obtain without going to school except maybe once or twice a year for finals (courses materials, exams, etc. would be in this case sent to you). Is it maybe about the CAVEJ formation ?
