As part of the Master in Management, specializing in Law, the Final year dissertation (FYD) inevitably has to be interdisciplinary. Comprising a "research thesis", the FYD is completed under the supervision of a professor from HEC Liège and a professor from the Faculty of Law.
Original research linked to the option students have chosen in their curriculum, the final year dissertation (FYD) is focused on the analysis of a general management problem expressed in research questions.
This project, based on a rigorous scientific approach, must enable students to demonstrate they have mastered the theoretical knowledge learned during training and are able to apply this knowledge discerningly in order to analyze and solve a practical problem connected to the business world.
As part of the Master in Law, with a specialization in Law and Management, students (holding a Master in Management Science, with a specialization in Law) are required to complete an internship during which they apply their legal expertise.
Students who have enrolled in a Master in Law degree course, with a specialization in Law and Management, have to complete a minimum 150-hour (roughly 4 weeks) internship.
An internship familiarizes students with the legal world and allows them to confront the theoretical knowledge acquired with its practical implementation. The internship offers real professional experience for students, as they are required to work on cases and perform legal tasks.
The internship may be undertaken with a law firm, a notary's office, the legal department of a private (commercial, financial or industrial) or public company, a semi-public organization or an international organization in or outside Belgium.
