This dual curriculum, in partnership with ICES (Institut Catholique de Vendée) provides students with a strong cultural background in order to enable them to approach contemporary world issues in their legal and political dimensions

The law courses are delivered by the ICES but students attend them from IPC, in class, by videoconference. Courses for the philosophy degree are delivered at IPC by IPC professors. Students enrolled at the IPC will only be on one campus, the one of IPC Paris.
