Bachelor in Law

The Bachelor in Law provides students with extensive knowledge and methodologies of private and public French laws, paving the way for further specialisation at Masters and PhD levels.

The objective of the Bachelor in Law is to provide an understanding of modern society through political, social, historical and philosophical perspectives and prepare students for successful careers in the legal profession.

During all three years of study, students will develop strong analytical tools improving their ability to arrive at well-reasoned opinions. During the first two years, students explore a range of legal disciplines including constitutional law, civil law, international relations, criminal law, administrative law and business law amongst other legal disciplines. During the third year, students learn about property law, fundamental freedom laws, labour law, EU law and general tax law amongst others.

As language is core to the degree programme, a language course has been integrated to expand our students’ capacity in this area, which will stand them in good stead for further study or international careers in the legal profession.

To supplement academic study, visits to judicial, administrative and corporate institutions coupled with visits by industry speakers are organised for students to learn about and experience the practical side of the legal profession.

There are abundant opportunities with a Bachelor’s degree in Law and students can launch successful careers including judges, solicitors, barristers, commercial lawyers, civil servants or advisors/officials of international organisations. Additionally, careers prospects include access to public and private sectors as consultants and legal representatives to a spectrum of fields including banking, health, trade, communications, FMCG firms and industries. Following the Bachelor’s degree, students can pursue the following Masters at Sorbonne Abu Dhabi: Banking and Finance: Law and Regulations of Banking and Financial Systems, International Business Law or International Law, International Relations and Diplomacy (general degree or a specialisation in Defence and International Security). The Master’s degree also leads to a Doctorate degree.
