Academic level

INSEAD MBA 1990 Fontainebleau, France

Formerly a lawyer at the Paris Bar


After an eclectic career path including almost a decade working as an international tax lawyer (“avocat” member of the French Paris bar) and several years teaching economics, business, law and accounting as well as French and English in various multicultural settings, Emmanuelle Faure is currently the tax, legal and accounting officer of a small consultancy business specialized in motivation and change management.

As a Professor of Law at EHL, her goal is to make students aware, through varied real-life cases which bring law to life, that legal risk is everywhere.
With a focus on professional relevance beyond merely passing exams, Mrs Faure does not teach law as knowledge to be learned by heart but instead facilitates her students acquiring the competencies necessary to identify, assess and manage basic hospitality legal risk wherever they might end up working in the world.

To enhance learning in her large classes (100+ students), Mrs Faure borrows from on-line-education techniques as well as from the flipped classroom model where memorizing knowledge is mostly done at home while the activities required to learn how to apply this knowledge - which used to be assigned as homework - now take place in the classroom where the teacher and the other students can help.
Traditional lecturing in the classroom has thus been replaced in Mrs Faure’s classroom by a more interactive student-centred approach that promotes optimal learning.
