    The Master Programme in European Union Law at Carlos III University trains jurists specialized in consultancy and problem solving issues relating to the international legal traffic.

    The experience achieved in more than 28 years has led to a highly competitive Programme taught by highly renowned professionals and experts in their respective fields and thus focalizing on a practical approach to the legal practice within the context of a globalized economy.

    Among the goals of the Programme, the capability of students to redact legal notes, claims or advisories as well as consultancy, team work skills and professional leadership skills within multicultural backgrounds are to be highlighted. The internships will be supervised and evaluated by international law firms, legal departments of multinational corporations or European Union institutions.

    Meanwhile it is possible to extend achieved education attending the Master of International Legal Studies at Washington College of Law* (Double Degree in International Legal Practice and European Union Law) or specialized courses in Commercial Law and Arbitration, Business and Financial Law or IP Law at the University of Zurich.
