The Master’s degree (M2*) in International Economic Law (MINTEC) aims at giving students a thorough knowledge of international economic legal issues.

The programme focuses mainly on the study of the World Trade Organisation, of the European Union in an economic perspective and of international economic development. The MINTEC also aims at providing students with some basic knowledge of international law, contracts and markets regulations. The syllabus also aims at giving international students the basics in French legal methodology and in French as a foreign language.
A study trip to Brussels will be organised in the frame of this programme. The students will have the opportunity to discover the European Institutions.

The MINTEC is composed of two semesters of mandatory courses.

Two tracks are available:  the Research track and the Professional track.

  • Students opting for the Research track must write a dissertation. When the programme is successfully completed, students who have chosen this track may apply for a PhD.
  • Students opting for the Professional track must do an internship (minimum 3 months) and write a report.

According to the French grading system, the master’s degree is a national diploma recognised in the European Union countries and which is equivalent to a Legum Magister (LL.M.).

* In the French system, the master program is divided into two years : Master 1 (first-year of Master) and Master 2 (second-year of Master). It is possible to apply either for Master 1 or Master 2.
