Eighty-five institutions worldwide are listed in the 2013 FT listing of the top Master of Law providers. EDHEC is the only French business school in this specialised group of schools.

The EDHEC LLM in Law & Tax Management, taught entirely in English, with the option to take modules in French, and drawing on the research done at LegalEdhec Research Centre, offers a practice-oriented and original curriculum, designed for students who aim to work as business lawyers, in-house counsels or compliance officers. This programme is also relevant for students wishing to work in a risk management department or division, or in a company where legal work features prominently.

The one-year programme integrates best legal practices into the heart of company strategies. The curriculum bridges the gap between legal norms and mechanisms, on one hand, and business and strategy, on the other. The convergence of best legal practices and strategy is being accelerated by the globalisation of both business and legal reforms. Global legal education is a growth area, with an increasing number of business and law schools offering LLM programmes. EDHEC remains at the forefront of this evolution. Christophe Roquilly, professor of law and director of LegalEdhec Research Centre, points to the special emphasis that EDHEC places on the ‘link between the technical knowledge in the field of business law and the managerial and strategic objectives of companies.’

The LLM in Law & Tax Management addresses this issue thanks to well-balanced content, with technical courses, such as international contracts, IP law, M&A, capital markets law, international tax, but also courses dedicated to law and strategy, lobbying, business ethics for lawyers, law and economics and, last, modules for soft skills (leadership, talent identification).

 ‘Our LLM is greatly supported by legal practitioners. Some modules are taught by highly renowned attorneys. We also have conferences and speeches from general counsels, compliance officers and directors of ethics of international companies, not to mention a smart group of international academics. This active presence of top practitioners is strong evidence of the “practice-oriented” approach’, says Christophe Roquilly, professor of law and co-director of the LLM in Law & Tax Management.
