Offered in Paris, the historical heart of the development of international arbitration, in close proximity to the main European arbitration institutions, to the best practitioners and specialized academics who have contributed to the worldwide reputation of international arbitration and its law, the LL.M. will also rely on the contribution of foreign academics and practitioners, in particular through various conferences.

What are the career opportunities?
Graduates of the LL.M.
