City Campus

Content

You will learn about jurisdiction, choice of law, and the effects of foreign judgements in two countries and specialise in commercial or family law aspects of private international law. You will spend your first semester in Dundee before completing your studies in the historic city of Toulouse.

You start in January and complete your dissertation with supervision from our academics over the summer months. You then go on to the University of Toulouse in September. Successful candidates graduate with the Dundee LLM and the Master 2 degree from Toulouse.

A core aspect of the course is the different learning experience in the French and Scottish components. At Dundee, you are given detailed reading lists that will introduce you to topics and give you questions to consider, with a view to promoting critical thinking through class discussions and reliance on the Socratic method. At Toulouse, teaching is in the form of both lectures and specialist seminars and concludes with a group project.

Entry Requirements

You must have, or expect to receive in the anticipated year of entry, a good honours degree in law. Exceptionally, non-law graduates with relevant legal experience may be considered.
