    IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT – ACADEMIC YEAR 2021/22

    This master program is planned to be taught On- Campus, in the academic year 2021/22.
    In the event that capacity limitations persist in the classrooms at the beginning of the course due to risks derived from the COVID-19 pandemic, students must follow the sessions that are determined synchronously online. The master program will set the most appropriate shift system, always ensuring the maximum presence of all its students.
    It is recommended to have a portable computer equipment for the follow-up of those training activities that are determined. This equipment is essential for carrying out practices in virtual environments in university classrooms that do not have computer stations.
    International students who prove difficulties or delays in obtaining their visas and entering Spain, may request remote teaching until they may join the classes on-campus.

    Universidad Carlos III de Madrid has launched an Official Master’s in Civil Liability with the objective of providing adequate coverage, from a practical and research perspective, of a legal area of extraordinary importance.

    From the interdisciplinary perspective provided by civil, commercial, labor and private international law, and, globally, the rest of the legal areas, the Master’s possesses a double profile: professional, which entails pursuing internships in companies, and academic or research-oriented, which leads to  direct access to the doctoral program.

    The Master’s program addresses topics such as the fundamentals of civil responsibility, civil responsibility and business activity insurance, civil responsibility for damages in labor relations, civil responsibility in international private relations, and patrimonial liability of the public administration, among others.
