Many will eventually end up owning their own business, or managing a section in larger organisations. They tend to be very goal-oriented, and work best when focused on a target. Some have an entrepreneurial inclination.

Summary... header image

This degree is one of two French Law Programmes offered by Sutherland School of Law, the other being the BCL/Maîtrise on the opposite page. All students interested in the French Law Programmes enter the BCL [Law with French Law] in first year. Both degrees offer the exciting opportunity for immersion in two of the world’s major legal systems, the common law and the civil law.

The BCL (Law with French Law) degree provides you with a qualification in Irish law, while acquiring a broad knowledge of French law and a very high level of competence in French language and French legal terminology. Students gain valuable comparative insights, which inform an enhanced critical perspective on Irish law.

One year (third) is spent at a leading law school in France.
