Summary... header image

In the first and second years, you will study a variety of legal modules, taken alongside students reading for our other undergraduate law programmes. Law and French students also study the constitutional and civil law of their chosen jurisdiction. Students will also be exposed to opportunities to develop their language skills and their understanding of aspects of sociology, legal systems and politics.

The French law components in this programme are designed to equip students to study and ultimately practise law through French or German. Instruction in these modules is through French or German. New entrants are not expected to be fluent; rather they will develop their language skills through the degree.

The third year is a compulsory year spent studying legal or related subjects in one of France or Germany’s universities.

In addition to learning about the legal systems in France and Ireland, graduates will have mastered a second language, which creates many opportunities for employment in large international organisations, not solely confined to the legal profession.
