Dual JD/LLM in European Law (Paris II)

Full-Year Option (English-Language Instruction)

In addition to the fall semester exchange program, BU Law students also have the option of pursuing a full year abroad at Paris II.

BU Law JD students have a unique opportunity to spend their entire third-year enrolled as LLM students at The European College of Paris—a new school within Paris II, established to confer an English-language LLM in European Law.  At the completion of the year in Paris, students will receive the BU JD and the Paris II LLM.

The program commenced in the 2008-2009 academic year, with the president of the European Court of Justice presiding over opening ceremonies.  The LLM instructors consist of Paris II professors, as well as some professors from other European law faculties, experienced practitioners, and one or two US law professors.  Professors coming from other European countries are carefully selected and are prominent specialists in their fields. This LLM program is highly selective and is limited to 20 students—and no more than 3 BU Law students may participate in any given year.
