DIFC Academy

The LL.M. (Legum Magister -Master in Laws) in International Business Law deals mainly with practical case studies and certain key subjects, with a pluridisciplinary focus. It prepares students and professionals for operations such as large acquisitions or market transactions, cross border mergers, complex financing, restructuring, LBOs, financial engineering, and industrial projects. These are interesting operations, offering difficulties that often lead to innovative solution seeking. It is particularly educational to study them and analyse the legal, financial or accounting issues raised. Thus, contracts, guarantees, financing and international trade litigation, among other basic subjects, can be studied from different angles.

The LL.M. in International Business Law is an innovative training program, in Law, that was created in the framework of the Sorbonne - Assas International Law School, first European Law School in Europe, Asia and Africa, thanks to the strengths of the leading French Law Panthéon-Assas University Paris 2. It has four campuses: one in Dubai, one in Mauritius, one in Paris (Pantheon-Assas-University), another one in Singapore (currently at INSEAD).

Our goal is to enlarge lawyers, new managers and jurists' knowledge on specific European and International Law issues.

The purpose of the admissions procedure is to identify evidence of qualities to be selected and to select classes with an overall balance of academic competence and work experiences.
