Morgane completed a comprehensive education : she graduated from high school with a baccalauréat in literature, completed further literary studies, then studied law, completed a lawyer-linguist master’s degree at ISIT, worked at the French Embassy in Austria and at the European Parliament. She then joined the Court of Justice of the European Union in Luxembourg.  She tells us about her experience as a young graduate with a passion for  law, languages and Europe as a whole.

Before ISIT ?

I graduated from high school with a baccalaureate in literature specializing in German and ancient languages, and then went on to do a year of further literature classes in Nancy. I discovered ISIT’s lawyer-linguist course through a friend, and applied for it while studying law at university.

Why ISIT ?

  • I definitely chose ISIT because the school is a benchmark on the international scene, and because its double degree (lawyer-linguist/law) allowed me to study both the fields in which I was mostly interested: law, and foreign languages.
  • ISIT also has an excellent professional network, good administrative guidance and varied extracurricular activities.

What are the advantages of an ISIT education ?

  • The teachers are very competent, and have solid professional backgrounds. They guided and advised us throughout our years at ISIT.
  • We were trained in legal translation, through many varied written and spoken classes, combining lectures and group work. The work rate is very intense, but it taught me how to handle a heavy workload.
  • This double degree allowed me to find excellent internships, and stand out during job interviews. To this day, all my classmates at ISIT obtained great internships, jobs or master’s degrees in the best Parisian universities. 

Your plans after ISIT ?

  • As I was determined to strengthen my European profile, I did the second year of the Grenoble Political Institute’s political sciences master’s degree online, in addition to my initial double degree.
  • I did an end-of-studies internship this year at the European Parliament, in Luxembourg, after an initial first month at the Directorate-General of Translation at the Court of Justice in Luxembourg. I also had the opportunity to work at the French Embassy in Vienna, in Austria.
  • I am now going to work for the Registry department of the Court of Justice in Luxembourg. I am thinking about taking the Nancy bar exams in September 2019 and, in the end, becoming advisor to a law practice and a freelance translator for the Court of Justice.

Do you have any advice for future students ?

Keep your options open, and, most importantly, don’t lose your motivation or strength: it is a demanding education, but in the end it will be incredibly worth it.
