By choosing the LLM in International and European Business Law at the University Jean Moulin Lyon 3, you have taken the right decision. The Lyon Law School is one of the best in France with an old history and an opening on foreign legal systems. In 1920, the well-known comparatist Edouard Lambert created the Institute of Comparative Law which now bears his name. Nowadays, one of the strengths of the Law School is its reputation in International and European Law.
It seemed then logical to create an LLM in International and European Business Law. The business orientation has been recently decided in order to give more coherence to this program. It has to be recalled that Lyon is a business hub with a specific position in Europe and particular business relations with Swiss and Italy. This position and our reputation allow us to attract the best lecturers and the best students.
This LLM is integrated in the Law School. Some of the lecturers are from the Lyon School of law and some of the optional courses will be taught in common with French Master Courses even though in English. Students from the LLM representing various nations will then be mixed with French students in order to speed up their French integration.
I wish you an unforgettable year in Lyon 3
Edouard Treppoz, Academic Director of the LL.M. Program
