The Licence en Droit is a three-year generalist course whose main objective is to provide a fundamental base of knowledge and skills in law, while allowing for specialisation from L3 onwards, organised as an "orientation" and then as an "option" in private or public law.

It prepares students either for a professional specialisation in a Master's degree or for immediate professional practice.

The ELAN L1 scheme, a success aid scheme. This course is based on a one-year extension of the Bachelor's degree course with support modules (refresher courses in written expression, oral expression, history, general culture and university methodology). This scheme is offered to students who are likely to encounter difficulties that have been identified as such by the Parcoursup vetting committee.

The Licence en Droit (Law Degree) can be declined as a "Licence généraliste avec option Accès santé" (L.A.S.). A "health minor" replaces some of the subjects in the Law degree to allow either entry into the second year of health studies in a MMOP (Medicine, Maieutics, Odontology and Pharmacy), or the pursuit of legal studies.
