Other public preparatory courses (IEJ)
AS WELL AS THE PREPARATORY CLASSES RUN BY THE ENM AND THE COURSES APPROVED BY THE SCHOOL, APPLICANTS CAN ALSO PREPARE FOR THE DIFFERENT ENTRANCE EXAMINATIONS WITH A NUMBER OF OTHER PUBLIC BODIES.
THESE INCLUDE THE JUDICIAL STUDIES INSTITUTES (IEJ) IN UNIVERSITY LAW FACULTIES. THE PROGRAMME THERE INCLUDES TALKS ON TOPICAL ISSUES IN LAW AND GENERAL KNOWLEDGE, and PRACTICE SESSIONS FOR THE ORAL ADMISSION EXAMINATIONS.
THERE ARE ALSO PREPARATORY COURSES THAT RUN ALONGSIDE MASTER'S 2 COURSES IN CERTAIN LAW DEPARTMENTS.
For the 1st, 2nd and 3rd ENM competitive entrance examinations, distance preparatory courses are also on offer, in particular with the IEJ Paris-1, University Panthéon-Assas and the Faculty of Law and Political Science at the University of Bordeaux.
For the complementary entrance examinations, a special preparatory course is offered by IEJ Paris-1. In addition, the association of serving judges and prosecutors who came through the exceptional and complementary examinations procedures (AMICCE) provides support to candidates for the complementary entrance examination with a view to boosting their chances of passing the eligibility and admission papers. This takes the form of information sessions. Contact : www.amicce.org.
At the same time, a period of immersion in a court can be a real plus when preparing for the ENM entrance examination. In particular it is possible to do non-judicial work at a court or apply to become a judicial assistant at a Regional Court.
