HEC Paris Law Faculty Welcomes Students

8 October 2015

The HEC Paris Law Welcome Day recently took place on campus, with 130 students taking part in numerous events and meeting staff and alumni of the faculty. Introduced by Dean Todd, the day aimed to strengthen ties between the school’s two law programs, namely the Majeure SJF and the MS DMI Droit et Management International.

The event also represented the opportunity for the Law Department to fully introduce itself to the student body as a whole and was attended by almost all of the faculty’s professors and administrative staff. Each one took time to explain their particular research interests, the different courses taught and other crucial information concerning law at HEC Paris. Aside from the programs themselves, students also learnt about the great number of diverse extracurricular activities on offer, such as the EU and Vis Moot competitions, the EU Public Interest Clinic in collaboration with New York University Law School, the Concours de Plaidoiries  at HEC and the brand new LLM partnership offered with Georgetown Law School. The school’s active law society – the Bureau des Juristes  – also presented themselves and the activities that they undertake during the academic year. Professor Alberto Alemanno underlined: “Law represents a crucial component of the HEC experience.

While all our students study law, a significant number of them decide to take the legal path to become an international business and tax lawyer, in-house legal counsel, policymaker or public interest advocate. Studying law here is more than classes and assignments as it entails exposure to first-hand legal experiences as epitomized by the EU Clinic and the many moot courts we offer ours students'.

Participants at the event also had the fortune of listening to an alumnus of the HEC Paris DMI course, Margot Sève. Now enjoying a successful professional career, Margot shared her experience of studying at HEC Paris and the benefits and pertinence of the courses offered. “The day gave us a real opportunity to fully integrate in the law department, and learning from experience is a source of inspiration for us to go on and replicate Margot’s success”, commented Lena, a student at HEC Paris.
