WHY CHOOSE US?

A track-record of over fifty years training legal professionals with the highest level of excellence and ethical values, both in terms of undergraduate and postgraduate studies, sufficiently endorses the students' choice of this Master's program at Comillas Pontifical University. It is also worth noting some of the other advantages of the degree program, such as the fact that it provides a practical perspective of the legal practice, the level of excellence and vast experience of the lecturers that constitute the faculty staff and the official in-company internship module that will allow our students to gain work experience in the most renowned firms, institutions and companies.


Who is it intended for?

This program covers the necessary contents that are required by the rules governing admission to the bar so that holders of a Bachelor's Degree in Law may engage in the legal profession as lawyers. Moreover, the training received by the students is supplemented with a second program, the Official Master's Degree in Corporate Law, offered by the Faculties of Law at ICADE and Deusto.

Therefore, this program is especially suited not only to Bachelor's Degree graduates, but also to holders of a Licentiate Degree in Law who wish to receive more comprehensive and advanced training in the practice of law in the context of a Corporate Law.

The admission process will consist in assessing the academic background of applicants by looking at their academic transcript and, where appropriate, requesting them to take an English test and attend an interview with the program's Joint Directors and/or Coordinator.

The admission application period opens in January 9, 2017 until all places are filled.

Our goal is to enable our students to acquire the professional skills in accordance with Law 34/2006 and its Royal Decree 775/2011, and pass the national entrance test to be convened annually by the Ministries of Justice and Education, which is the final requirement, once the Master's Degree has been awarded, to be admitted to the bar. Furthermore, we also seek to train professionals with high levels of excellence in the practice of law that have a clear understanding of the characteristics and challenges of the profession in the 21st century in addition to a comprehensive and in-depth level of specialization in the field of Corporate Law.

The teaching methodology is based on the case method, understood as the use of teaching tools that are very close or virtually identical to those employed in the professional practice of law in the field of Corporate Law. Thus, the students engage in trial simulations, preparation of legal documents, negotiations, etc. Our aim is to train future professionals on what it means to be a lawyer and its social implications, as well as to master the tools that they will use as lawyers and gain a deeper understanding of the field of Corporate Law, with particular emphasis on litigation as a tool to develop not only their procedural capabilities as future lawyers, but also other essential profession-specific skills.
