Compulsory for students of the LLB English and French Laws with Maitrise I.
Students will gain an understanding of the legal development of French constitutional law, and learn to think and work effectively in French law alongside the English legal system.
To this end, students will be presented with an overview of French constitutional law, including elements on the general theories of the concept of state, the functioning and the role of French institutions, the protection of the Constitution and the protection of human and fundamental rights by the French constitutional court, the Conseil constitutionnel.

We will also focus on the techniques of legal writing specific to French law and French legal culture. Students will acquire an in-depth understanding of the style of reasoning necessary to write a dissertation juridique, one of the techniques you will have to understand and master before going to France.
