Career prospects

E-1 is the beginning of a professional career in which the student can develop and continue in the best national and international law firms, in legal departments of multinational companies, as well as in the public administration, among other professional options. Once the graduate becomes a member of the Spanish Bar and completes the LL.M. in the United States, the student can sit for the Bar exam in the State of New York (except for DePaul College of Law).

Academic prospects

Regardless of whether students choose to undertake an LL.M. abroad, students have direct access to prestigious postgraduate programs at Comillas, including both the Official Master's Degree for Admission to the Bar (which qualifies students to work as lawyers under Law 34/2006 and the Royal Decree 775/2011) as well as other Master's Degree programs which form part of the Center for Innovation in Law (CID-ICADE) and ICADE Business School.
