The Public Administration License (LAP) is a national diploma, at Bac +3 level, allowing to present the category A competitions of the Public Service.

Description of the course

The training provided allows students to deepen their knowledge of the administrative environment and the functioning of public institutions, based on lessons in public law (constitutional law, administrative law, public finance), economics and management.

It is also aimed at students who need to acquire the fundamental general, legal and economic knowledge required to take the various administrative competitions. The teaching provided by academics and civil service executives provides a solid methodological foundation that is essential for success in category A administrative competitions.

The training is organised over a period of 12 months with an average rhythm of three weeks of teaching and one week in administration from September to December, then one week of teaching and three weeks in administration from January.
