Greetings fellow dual French citizen. First of all you need to make sure that the study abroad program you are looking into does in fact grant an actual Master en Droit (and not a different masters degree that does not qualify you to take the French bar exam, or to do anything else for that matter).
Secondly, in the interest of saving money (and a good deal of trouble mastering two separate legal systems) it would probably be best to choose which country you want to work in before going to school. Even with two degrees you cannot work in two countries at once so it's a choice you'll have to make regardless.
And say you do choose to go to law school in France and for some reason want to practice in America down the road, alot of American law schools have special LLMs for laywers from other countries.

Thank you :-)

I saw that many American schools have that option for foreign lawyers. I don't want to return to Europe now. I will take it one step at a time. It's just too bad to spend so much time in school to end up stuck in one place in order to practice.
