The MS/LLM DMI aims at training jurists capable of combining legal expertise with strategic and operational skills. Graduates know how to:
- Inform clients’ decision-making processes through legal expertise and an in-depth understanding of strategic and operational issues;
- Limit legal risks, with the ability to identify and quantify them, and to come up with solutions.
There are three essential pillars to the program:
- Legal risk management;
- Understanding of general management;
- Implementation of the managerial dimension of Law.
This teaching approach allows students to discover new topics while becoming more operational with already acquired skills, and hence prepares them for their future careers.
Aligned with international standards, the program is called MS/LLM (Specialized Master/Master of Laws) and benefits from an international visibility. This is particularly relevant as graduates pursue their careers on a global scale and as HEC Paris is a world-renowned business school.
Besides, an increasing part of the courses is taught in English, which facilitates international students’ access to the program.
Students can extend their studies with one year at the prestigious Georgetown University Law School (Washington D.C.). A major place for learning and exchanges between the best lawyers in the world, Georgetown Law brings to students a high-level of teaching. It paves the way to the Bar of New York and to a legal career in the United States.
