Tax & Law

The Tax and Law Department educates a new generation of legally savvy managers and lawyers in a rapidly-changing landscape driven by globalization and the technological revolution. HEC Law thus privileges an approach fostering law in action as opposed to law in books, as exemplified by our pioneering legal clinical program (EU Public Interest Clinic), our involvement in a number of moot courts, and our law projects undertaken with real-world actors, such as international law firms, companies and civil society organizations. The teaching offered by the members of the department bears a direct correlation to their research agenda.

Research focuses in:

  • Transnational Law, Regulation & Governance
  • Law, Science & Technology
  • Corporate & Tax Law
  • European & International Economic Law

The department includes more than 10 professors, and has gained a significant public profile through major media outlets and numerous publications in international law journals and the books.

Our faculty members teach throughout all HEC programs, from the Grande Ecole to the MBA and Executive Education, as part of the following courses:

  • LLM in International Management & Law
  • Master in International Taxation & Legal Strategy
