    • In the third term, one compulsory subject on the Legal Practice and Representation course corresponding to the main part of this degree (9 ECTS in morning classes) and the final dissertation for the Intelectuall Property master's degree.
    • The fourth and final term is dedicated to the guided external work placement designed for students to acquire the skills and abilities needed to exercise the profession of law and completing the final dissertations for the Legal Practice and Representation master's degrees.
