He studied at the Faculty of Law of Sherbrooke, as well as on the Campus of the University of Montreal. These two new experiences were enriching and instrumental for his career.

This path gave him solid and in-depth training. Thus, at the end of his studies, he had completed four master degrees:

  • Environmental law (University of Montpellier)
  • Business law (University of Montpellier)
  • Common law / transnational law, LLM (University of Sherbrooke)
  • International commercial law / arbitration, Master 2 (University of Montpellier)

Julien Bérard,
passionate about law

Mr. Bérard’s curiosity and love of learning led him to diversify his university studies and to expand his areas of interest. Winner of the annual moot court competition of the Faculty of Montpellier and former parliamentary assistant, he has diversified his areas of expertise over the years to learn more about human motivation, through negotiation and oral debates. An ardent defender and practitioner of oratorical art, he is particularly fond of public speaking. That is why, for approximately 15 years, he has been involved in amateur theatre simultaneously with his professional activities. In France, as well as in Montreal, he has participated in many shows, allowing him to deepen his love of words, of narration and of sharing them with the public.
