This second year* of Master in Comparative and European Private International Law (CEPIL) provides a research master’s degree.
It is entirely taught in English and has been set up in September 2011 by a cooperation agreement between the Université Toulouse 1 Capitole and the University of Dundee in Scotland.
This programme is a double degree giving the chance to the students into it to be graduated of a Master 2 and a LL.M (Latin Legum Magister) in the same time. The French Master is issued after having spent the first semester in the Université Toulouse 1 Capitole and the LL.M after the second semester in the University of Dundee. The LL.M certificate is presented during a graduation ceremony taking place in the University of Dundee.
This kind of programme remains unusual in France because of the cross competences, reflexes, methodology and knowledge necessary to the Internationalisation and especially Europeanisation of private law situations and regulations. The LL.M is a diploma globally recognised, in particularly in the English countries. The graduation implies to write a short thesis in English according to the regulation of the University of Dundee.
* 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.
