There is not only one choice of orientation to integrate law studies. Each sector has its advantages for success. Although a general bac (S, ES, L) is still recommended, it is possible to enroll in law from an STG course.
STG course : if you have a STG bac, know that even if this course includes legal courses, these courses are very different from those given in law school: general legal reflection does not correspond to a logic of application pure. Note that for STG baccalaureate holders, there is a refresher course in certain universities enriching the training in Law by compulsory non-legal upgrading courses. and diversification of skills.
Science stream: statistically, this is the sector with the best success rate in the first year of Law. Being used to learning and reasoning on a large content of knowledge, scientists succeed thanks to their rigor and their capacity for work. Their spirit of synthesis and logic makes it easier for them to structure their homework as well as to determine what is really useful and necessary. However, it seems that they encounter difficulties in writing the exercises. Their written expression can sometimes lack elaboration, especially when the subject moves away from the course and requires mobilizing general knowledge or carrying out additional research. In addition, unlike other fields, the scientific path is exempt from any social matter.
Literary sector: the main asset of a student with a Bac L is their ability to correctly write a commentary or an essay. Having the habit of building dissertation plans from the first class, and whatever the subject (French, Philosophy, History, Literature), literary people have been able to acquire a precious writing ease for the exercises required in Law. The difficulties that some students graduating from a bac L may encounter during their law studies are not specific to this sector. The main difficulties are related to rigor, organization and the amount of personal work required. You have to be fast and efficient in your personal work but also during the tests which are shorter than in high school (3h tests).
Economic and social sector: the economic and social sector is a generalist route in which the content of the subjects taught is quite diverse. Although it does not include a right, the ES track is essentially focused on the social sciences. Thus, it allows us to grasp the importance of law in society through the study of the economy, sociology and French and international political history. By choosing to take an ES bac, you have a very useful background of knowledge for the subjects taught in the 1st year. Therefore, this path has many advantages when you want to move towards law studies.
