It also serves as an intensive preparation for the TOLES (Test Of Legal English Skills) for which the University of Montpellier is an examination center.
This diploma and this certification aim to offer students increased opportunities to work in French and international law firms interested in this opening to Anglo-Saxon legal culture. Successful completion of this certification attests to a level of B2 or C1 (Council of Europe)
