Full-Year Option (English-Language Instruction):
Dual Degree Program - J.D./LL.M in European Law

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

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

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

This program is available to qualified 3L students and instruction is offered entirely in English.
