Lawyer Linguist Admissions
Master 2 languages
- All students must be fluent in French and English.
- You may choose a third language from among German, Arabic, Chinese, Spanish or Italian.
Be enrolled in a law degree program or have completed the equivalent of the first year of a Master of Laws
ISIT has a partnership with the Faculté de Droit Jean Monnet – Université Paris Sud and the Université Paris 2 Panthéon – Assas.
If you would like to enroll in another law degree program, contact Christel Reille: email@example.com
You must currently be in your final year of high school or have earned the equivalent of a high school degree.
Because of the large number of candidates who come to ISIT from around the world, first-year applicants do not fill out their application on the same Admission Post-Bac website created for French students.
If you do not hold a law degree, you can still enroll in ISIT’s Lawyer-Linguist program, on the condition that you also enroll in the Faculté de Droit Jean Monnet – Université Paris Sud through the APB website, with Faculté de Droit Jean Monnet – Université Paris Sud as your first choice. Students accepted to ISIT are automatically accepted at the Faculté de Droit Jean Monnet – Université Paris Sud per an agreement between the two schools.
To enter as a 2nd-, 3rd- or 4th-year student
- 2nd-year entry: have completed your first year of university studies (L1) in law
- 3rd-year entry: have completed your second year of university studies (L2) in law

Candidates for our Lawyer-Linguist dual degree program are evaluated based on their mastery of written expression in multiple working languages, their analytical skills and general knowledge.
Admission in first/second/third year
Admissions are based on the completion of topic-based exercises in each of the candidate’s working languages. Exercises will contain different types of support documents (texts, photos, images, drawings, figures, graphs etc) as well as the viewing of a short video in English (or French if the candidate’s mother tongue is English):
- Exercise 1 – 2 hours: Summary writing in English based on a given topic and support documents (or in French if the candidate’s mother tongue is English) + 3 questions to respond to in the candidate’s other working language.
- Exercise 2 – 2 hours: Translation from the candidate’s two working languages into their mother tongue.
- Lunch break – 2 hours: Activities proposed by the student associations of ISIT.
- Exercise 3 – 2 hours: Writing exercise in the candidate’s mother tongue in which the candidate expresses a personal opinion, based on one of the topics previously covered.
Example: I am a candidate for admission to ISIT and my language combination is English mother tongue plus French and Spanish as working languages.
The first exercise will involve analysing support documents in French and Spanish based on specific topics. Then, respectively, I will be required to write a summary in French and respond to three questions in Spanish. Exercise 2 will then involve translating texts from French and Spanish into my mother tongue, English.
Finally, after the lunch break, I will be required to write a text in my mother tongue (English) expressing a personal view and based on one of the topics presented in the previous exercises.
Admission in fourth year
- Writing exercise: Translations from the candidate’s two working languages into their mother tongue on an legal intercultural topic.
- Oral exercise: a personal, multilingual interview with a jury
- Acceptance into ISIT depends on completion of a high school or baccalaureate degree for students in their final year, and completion of other degrees for parallel admissions.
