Evening classes allow EFB students to do a 3-month internship in a law firm or a company in Mauritius, practicing international business law. The internship is an integral part of the LL.M. and thus contributes to the validation of the PPI, in accordance with an agreement concluded in September 2019 between the Paris 2 Pantheon-Assas University and the EFB. In 6 months, EFB students can obtain an LL.M., complete an internship and validate their PPI abroad. For EFB student who does not want to pursue an internship, they will have to write a thesis under the supervision of one of the Professors in charge of the seminars.
