The final examination is the discussion of the dissertation in front of a Graduation Committee. This final paper, which may also be in a foreign language, is written under the guidance of a supervisor chosen by the student. In writing and discussing the dissertation, the student must demonstrate methodological rigour, full mastery of the topics and themes addressed, as well as the presentation skills expected in the legal professions. The dissertation and its presentation represent the final assessment of the analysis, synthesis, independent judgement and communication skills acquired throughout the Degree Programme.

The request must be accompanied by the dissertation supervisor's statement on the progress of the dissertation (which must be close to completion within the deadline set for its upload).
