A program built on multilingualism

All courses are taught in ISIT’s working languages. Students are required to be fluent in French and English. Students may choose to add a third language from Arabic, Chinese, German, Italian and Spanish.

Selected third-year students will have the opportunity to participate in a one-year exchange program with a law school abroad. They will graduate with an equivalent degree granted by their home law school.


Students must also pass the Franco-British Chamber of Commerce and Industry exam in their second year to earn ISIT’s Lawyer-Linguist degree.

A professional and international experience

Students who do not participate in a third-year international exchange must complete an 8-week internship in the legal field. Internships may be completed during study abroad.

What about employment?

Our students become lawyer-linguists and lawyers working in prestigious professional settings including European institutions, international organizations, international law offices and large global companies.
