International Law programme

To earn a lawyer-linguist degree, students must follow a twofold curriculum consisting of a four-year language programme at ISIT and a law degree at the Faculté de Droit Jean Monnet in Sceaux. Applicants must first pass the ISIT entrance examinations. If they do, their contact information is then provided to the law school to complete the registration process.

Entry requirements

Applicants must either be in the final year of secondary school or have a French baccalaureate diploma.

Candidates should not attempt to apply to ISIT using the Admission Post Bac web portal (APB).

However, those wishing to apply to the Lawyer-Linguist programme should use APB to simultaneously apply to the Faculté de Droit, listing the Université Paris XI Jean Monnet as their first choice. If they pass the entrance examinations for ISIT, their application to the Faculté de Droit will be accepted.


Winter, spring or summer session : candidates could now choose between one of the three 2015 ISIT exam sessions.

The application forms (in French) are available for download on since mid-October 2014.
