For more than fifty years Comillas Pontifical University ICAI-ICADE has trained legal professionals of the highest level. The excellence and ethical values guide Degree and Postgraduate studies at the Faculty of Law, selected by the Financial Times in November 2016 as one of the best 91 Postgraduate Law Schools in the world.
The Official Master's Degree for Admission to the Bar and the Official Master's Degree in Corporate Law, organized through the Center for Legal Innovation in Law (CID-ICADE) of the Faculty of Law, along with the University of Deusto, has all the value and the guarantees associated with our University, such as the clearly professionalizing methodology and the excellence and experience of our teaching staff who deliver it.
The Official Master's Degree for Admission to the Bar ICADE and the Official Master's Degree in Corporate Law include a process for a regulated and tutored external internship which allows students to access major law firms, institutions and companies based on their profile and interests. Moreover, our Master's offers specific preparation for the official bar entry examination.
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.

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.
