What is the Master's Degree for Admission to the Bar and LL.M.?

The Master's Degree for Admission to the Bar and LL.M., organised by the Centro de Innovación del Derecho (CID-ICADE) of the Faculty of Law is a dual master’s programme aimed at training professionals capable of working in international contexts and with global clients, with all the values and guarantees of our university, such as a clearly professional-focused methodology and the excellence and experience of the professors who deliver the courses

The first of the two years of the Master's Degree for Admission to the Bar and LL.M. is taken at an American university, and the second at Comillas ICADE. The Master's Degree for Admission to the Bar allows you to sit the official access exam, which is organised by the Spanish Ministry of Justice and completing the American LL.M. prepares you to sit for the New York State Bar Examination.

The first year is taken at an American university and the second year at Comillas ICADE

For more than fifty years, the Comillas Pontifical University has trained legal professionals of the highest level. Excellence and ethical values are the main cornerstone of the Undergraduate and Postgraduate courses offered by the Faculty of Law, as chosen by the Financial Times in November 2016 as one of the world’s 91 top Masters of Laws schools.
