Training in Foreign Languages Int Co

Training in French – Master 1 (Paris II)

A course in French language, entitled: “French and European Law” for Hungarian students began at the Faculty in the spring term of 2002. It was the result of an agreement between Université Panhéon-Assas (Paris II) and ELTE’s Faculty of Law and Political Sciences. The course lasts for four semesters, and each semester consists of twenty hours of lectures and eight hours of seminars.

In 2006 that programme transformed. Since then it is called: “French and Hungarian Maîtrise of Law” (Master 1). The participants can obtain the diploma of Panthéon-Assas Paris II University, a diploma that is recognized by both states. A Hungarian Juris Doctor diploma is a precondition for getting that French degree.

To help the studies of those students, the library of the Faculty has been augmented with French legal documentation. The purchase of those books and documents has been financed by the culture section of the French Embassy in Hungary.

Training in German – LL.M. (Göttingen)

A course in German language, entitled: “German and European Law” for Hungarian students began at the Faculty in the autumn term of 2002. It was the result of an agreement between Georg-August-Universität Göttingen and ELTE’s Faculty of Law and Political Sciences. The course lasts for two semesters, and each semester consists of 36 hours of lectures and consultations, which are held in German by instructors of the Göttingen University.

As from the 2006/2007 academic year, the cooperation of the two universities assumed a new format. After completing their legal programme in German in Budapest and upon obtaining their Hungarian Juris Doctor diploma, Hungarian students may attend the Göttingen University for one semester and obtain the LL.M. diploma of the Georg-August-Universität.

The Göttingen University acknowledges the Hungarian students’ completion of studies at ELTE to be equivalent with one semester in the master’s training. That is why it is sufficient for those students to attend classes at Göttingen for just one semester and then they may defend their diploma thesis.

Thanks to donations by the Georg-August-Universität of Göttingen, the library of the Faculty has been complemented by German legal documentation.
