The global reputation of French industries and traditional skills, as well as the associated talents which are actively sought after internationally, from engineers to the catering trades, stems from the high standard of our education system and the excellence of our training solutions, as well as our research.
However, given the cut in budget allocations by local authorities, and faced with a world undergoing perpetual change, schools, vocational training organizations and apprenticeship centers, but also Higher Education – Universities, Research and Higher Education Centers (PRES), and leading universities – Research Institutes and Competitiveness Clusters, must all meet new challenges in terms of performance… and, in some cases, competition.
Governance and financing strategies, such as the optimization of tangible and intangible assets, are more relevant than ever to managing the risk of encountering difficulties and to anticipating the future, notably through tie-ups, restructuring, alliance or partnership projects. Which, for some, necessarily means finding international solutions.

From audits to contracting, through multiple operations, including real estate, and the valuation of portfolios of industrial property rights… law is in more than one respect the indispensable tool for the sustainability of education, training and research.
