French term or phrase: Directeur du Master II
This is a title behind an attorney's name. I am not exactly what would be an appropriate translation in American English. Exact context is: "Directeur du Master II - droit et fiscalité du tourisme"

Program Director, Master II
Explanation:
In France, the previous equivalents of master degrees (DEA and DESS) have been replaced, following the Bologna Process, by both a Research Master (Master Recherche) and a Professional Master (Master Professionnel). The first was said to prepare for a PhD and the second one for professional life but the difference between these two masters tends to disappear and one would only speak about a "Master". A Research or Professional Master is a 2-year postgraduate training usually accomplished after a 3-year training, the Licence. The first year of the master is called a "Master 1" (M1) and the second year of the Master is called a "Master 2" (M2). The Grandes écoles usually recruit in the third year of the License and offer both the third year of the Licence and a complete 2-year master degree.
