On Saturday 18 November, The Association de Juristes de Pantheon et de King’s (AJPK), the student and alumni association of the Anglo French programme, celebrated the course’s 40th anniversary with a dinner-dance at les Salons de l’Hotel de Metiers et des Arts, over-looking the Eiffel Tower.
Patrick Wallace (an alumnus of the programme, in the first graduating year of 1981) addressed the guests, as did current alumni and students, with a video message from one of the key founders of the programme, Dame Judith Mayhew-Jonas, who was programme director in 1977.
The association aims to develop and nurture a close network of students and alumni, and regularly organises a wide range of events from social meetings to law firm presentations by potential employers. The anniversary provided an opportunity to get together and celebrate.
The King’s-Paris programme is the oldest of its kind in both the UK and France and provides a challenging bi juridical and bilingual education. Students on the programme must pass programmes at both institutions to receive an LLB (from King’s) and the Maitrise en droit from Paris.
