Presentation of the training
This level I training (Bac+5) was created in 1984 at the very beginning of the decentralization process implemented at the same time in France. It has had different titles, always including the notion of local authorities and law. It has regularly adapted to the requirements of professionalization and the need for permanent modernization of public action, taking into account both the challenges and new tools as well as the reflections carried by the doctrine on issues relating to territories and their evolution. It is now entitled Master 2 Public Law and Management of Local Authorities.
The Master 2 in Public Law and Management of Local Authorities brings a double competence, management and law. This transdisciplinarity meets the needs of local authorities and their groupings (EPCI) as well as the organizations, institutions and companies working with them. These various institutions require managers who know how to envisage the exercise of the competences entrusted by the legislator to local and regional authorities in a global and forward-looking manner. Alongside a dominant specialty, the executive must be capable of grasping the issue to be resolved in its various aspects. They must have the capacity to analyze the issue by breaking it down and to synthesize in order to provide a response based on the intersection of the legal and management disciplines.
Training is available in initial and continuing education. It mainly welcomes students with a Master's Degree in public law and management sciences with a focus on public management.
It is also open to students who are returning to study for validation of prior learning (VAP or VAE).
Finally, since 2012 ENSOSP students, under certain conditions (see partnerships) are also part of the student body.
This Master 2 allows students to acquire knowledge and skills specific to the changing territorial context at the legal, economic, and managerial levels. At the end of the Master, the student will be able to:
- Develop strategies adapted to local public policies, from their birth to their evaluation.
- act in the service of the local authority by analyzing a public policy issue in its various aspects, synthesizing them and identifying solutions.
- design, plan and implement a project, taking into account legal and regulatory constraints and coordinating the different actors and partners in the project.
- set up technical, administrative and financial files thanks to the mastery of editorial techniques relating to the public sector.
- adapt to the evolution of the fields of competence of local authorities and the local administrative world.
- carry out a mission while having a perspective on professional issues.
- build strategic and operational information supports for the teams and partners of local authorities.
- facilitate the articulation between the legal and managerial fields, whatever its initial field (legal or managerial).
- demonstrate an indispensable open-mindedness in local action due to the multiplicity of partnerships of territorial authorities.

Je suis principalement en charge de l’organisation des instances municipales et du suivi des actes pris par la commune (délibérations, arrêtés et décisions). J’accompagne les services dans la conception et la rédaction de ces actes, des rapports au Conseil municipal et des conventions liées. Je mène en parallèle le projet de dématérialisation des actes.
Ce que j'aime le plus dans mon métier :
- La vision d’ensemble sur les actions de la ville.
- Être au sein d’un service ressource, ce qui me permet d’interagir avec la plupart des services et de travailler sur des sujets très variés.
