Law - Master's Year 1

Program Objectives

Students in the first year of the Master’s degree in Law take one of three majors: Corporate Law and Taxation or Asset Management, which are offered as initial training programs, and Law and Public Governance, which is offered as a work-study program. Students specialize over the course of the year in preparation for the second year of the Master’s program, in which they select an academic track.

Each of the three majors offers a “research” track that offers second-year Master’s students the opportunity to take “Legal Research and Innovation” (curriculum offered from 2021).

Program objectives:

  • Benefit from an interdisciplinary law program integrating management and economics, taught in large part by professionals
  • Be exposed to various perspectives from the full range of legal professions via the large number of specialized tracks available in the second year
  • Be open to international opportunities

The goal of the major in Asset Management is to train high-caliber legal professionals wishing to pursue a career as a notary, a wealth manager at a bank or insurance company, a lawyer specializing in asset law, or a wealth management consultant.
Students gain a solid education in the fundamentals of the legal and judicial disciplines through a combination of practical apprenticeships and an introduction to research through a requirement to conduct research. Seminars in English and International Private Law demonstrate the program’s commitment to internationalization.
In response to a real need in the asset management and notarial professions, the Asset Management major has, since September 2019, offered students the opportunity to obtain a double degree after two years of Master’s study if they also take the Professional Property Law track and a Notarial Law track. However, students may also continue to choose just one track.
The Dauphine spirit stems from strong links with the professional world and the alumni network and is perpetuated by deeply committed cohorts who spearhead various community projects.
