    The Master in International Advocacy seeks to produce graduates with the skills and knowledge necessary to seize the opportunities in a global environment. The expansion of the international market in legal services requires specialized lawyers who can work in multi-jurisdictional and multidisciplinary teams. The Master in International Advocacy will prepare students to successfully meet the challenges of the demanding context of legal globalization.

    The Master in International Advocacy offers a legal training that is transnational, novel, and practical, using an approach that combines the soft skills necessary for the international practice of the law, and which transcend traditional legal disciplines, such as legal writing and oral advocacy, negotiation, and time, client and project management. It also offers an eminently practical training in the optional areas of intensification designed (Transactional and Resolution of Disputes), and with an end-of-master project, which will consist of the development of a complex international dispute or transaction.

    This Master, highly competitive at the international level, is taught entirely in English* on the Transactional path, and is bilingual (English and Spanish) on the path of Dispute resolution.

    * The End of the Master Project as well as the Internship might be done in a bilingual way, although it will not be necessary to accredit any level of knowledge of the Spanish language. The Program will guarantee that those subjects might be developed in the English language.

    • MOOTS

      A. MOOT COURT (Dispute resolution Track)

      In order to obtain the Master's degree in International Law, students must complete the Master's Final Project that, in the path of Dispute Resolution, will consist of participation in MOOT COURT (TFM Moot or TFM Award). Also the option for a specific research project (Social Challeng) is foreseen.

      A very practical methodology that will allow students to acquire the necessary skills and abilities, both substantive and procedural for the transnational practice of the Bar is articulated as Master's Final Project. It also takes advantage of the background and experience of the Carlos III University of Madrid in this type of international competitions, since the UC3M has not only been a pioneer in the participation of this type of competitions since 1998, but it is also organizer of an International Moot, the Moot Madrid, having achieved important international successes. Thus, the Carlos III University of Madrid was ABSOLUTE VICTOR at the Frédéric Eisemann Award prevailing team in orals. On that occasion, the Carlos III University achieved the first place in the most prestigious category of the competition against 203 Universities from around the world.

      The TFM Moot consists of participation in a moot. The Moot Courts are international legal competitions where students must test their written and oral skills. This is a simulation of international arbitration or international litigation where students will develop the full defense of their client's interests both from the side of the plaintiff and from the side of the defendant, usually at least four times compared to other teams and courts of law. three referees or judges.

      Students must perform a process of prior selection by the coaches to determine their incorporation to the TFM in the corresponding modality. The participation in the competition does not grant the right to be a speaker during the oral phase of the competition, being left to the decision of the coaches. The cost of registration in the competition will be assumed by the MAI, plus an economic bag that will cover all or part of the trip and accommodation of each student who participates in the oral phase.

      Among the Moot courts in which students could potentially participate, subjecting participation to a selection process, to the criteria of the master's organization and the preference of the students, are:

      • 1. Willem C Vis International Commercial Arbitration Moot (Vis Moot). English language.
      • 2. Investment Arbitration Moot (FIA, FDI or Investment Arbitration Competition).
        Investment Arbitration Moot (FIA Moot): English language. Under the rules of the competition Master students need prior approval of the organization to participate so the selection process is open only to students of the Master who are recent graduates without previous work experience.
        FDI Moot: English language
        Investment arbitration competition: Spanish language
      • 3. Moot Madrid: Spanish language.
      • 4. International Moot of Negotiation and Civil and Commercial Mediation. Spanish Language. In accordance with the rules of the competition, students can not have more than 25 years in any case.
      • 5. International Maritime Law Arbitration Moot Court. English language.

      The Moot teams will be mixed as a rule, that is, they will be formed by undergraduate and master students and their number varies between 2-6 students. The defense of the TFM will always be individual.

      The arbitration proceedings are not exhausted with the preparation of the writs of claim and defense, nor with the defense during the hearings, but it culminates with the Award, the decision adopted by the arbitrator or arbitral tribunal. In order to promote a comprehensive training of future international lawyers, the TFM Award modality is also offered, consisting of the elaboration of the most relevant moot Award of Commercial Law and arbitration, as well as its defense before a court.

      The modality of TFM Award is foreseen (exclusively) for the Moots mentioned above: Moot Madrid (Spanish language); Willem Vis International Commercial Arbitration Moot (Moot Vis, English language), Moot Maritime (English language) and FIA Moot or FDI Moot (English language).

      In the modality TFM Award, for the elaboration of the award, the student will have a writing of demand and another one of answer of the edition in course of the indicated competitions. The wording of the award and its defense will be made in English, except in the case of Moot Madrid, which will be in Spanish. The students of TFM Laudo del Moot Madrid have the possibility, if they so wish (voluntarily), to participate in the award for the Best Award of the Moot Madrid, according to the bases of said competition.

      The Award can be made either individually or by teams formed by a maximum of 2 students, although the defense will always be individual. The teams will not be mixed and, therefore, only MAI students can participate. The TFM Award schedule is established at the end of the oral phase of the respective Moot Court and will end with the delivery date of the award in September.

       

       

      B. Social Challenge: Research work

      As a special possibility, and evaluating case by case, you can contemplate the possibility of completing a Master's Thesis in a research mode.

      For these purposes, students may participate in the so-called "Challenge. In this third option for the Final Master's Project, the student will be able to develop a research project on a topic proposed by an NGO, or another institution of civil society, and agreed upon with the Master. It will be a relevant issue for the activity of the NGO or institution, in which it needs technical-legal basis to develop its activity, lobby or expand social awareness. The student will work under the supervision of an academic or professional tutor, linked to the Carlos III University of Madrid and / or the NGO or institution. The work will be done in English, although the characteristics of the problem analyzed, and the target audience of the report may require its development in Spanish. The development will be adjusted according to the schedule agreed with the NGO or institution.

      The Final Master's Project will be defended in public and individual session before a Court designated by the University.

    • BTL

      BUSINESS TRANSACTION LAW (BTL)

      To obtain the Master's degree students must undertake a Master 's Final Project, which will consist of participation in a moot court or a business transaction lab (BTL). Exceptionally it may be a research paper on any of the matters of the Master.

      The BTL replicates the practice of a transactional attorney in large operations, on an international scale. The practical case (Case Study) will consist of a simulation of an acquisition of company assets, or both, with a cross - border dimension. Students will not only have to get familiar with the process, but also learn to identify risks, and reflect them through the appropriate clauses, which will have to be incorporated in the contractual documentation they will have to draft.

      In order to simulate the cross-border situation in a more realistic manner the students should lead the process, coordinate and negotiate in teams of lawyers, which will be formed with students from other countries. Teams will not be formed on the basis of their nationalities, but on the basis of the parties to the transaction, so that each party-team will be represented in each of the jurisdictions involved.

      In the process of coordination, negotiation, drafting and closing students will be tutored by lawyers of prestige and experience in large operations. The ultimate goal will be to achieve the closing of a complex transaction, with its associated documentation.

      Master in Legal Practice (SEPTEMBER ED.)
      Master in International Advocacy

      Admission period closed

       

      UC3M offers students the possibility to jointly take the Master in Legal Practice, which will help them to prepare for the professional aptitude assessment examinations in order to exercise the profession of law, and the Master in International Advocacy, thus obtaining a high level of specialization which will place them in an excellent position for entering the job market.

      Master in Legal Practice

      In its current guise, the Master’s degree in Legal Practice has developed in response to the requirements of the Law 34/2006 of 30 October regulating access to the professions of lawyer and court procedural representative (procurador), a legal reform that was taken as an opportunity to structure a postgraduate program that will improve training of law graduates thus facilitating access to the job market.

      The Master's degree is carried out jointly, taking advantage of the resources and experience of the ISDE School of Legal Practice approved by the General Law Council which with its justly merited prestige has extensive and  long experience in training programs for the practice of law.

      Master in International Advocacy

      Furthermore, the Master in International Advocacy which is offered in bilingual form (taught jointly in Spanish and English) will train professionals in transnational practice of law, and thus with capacity and the tools to address the situations in a global environment. The Master in International Advocacy is inspired by an approach to transnational legal education that puts future professionals among the best trained to face the demanding context of legal globalization. It does so through a methodology that combines the soft skills to acquire the tools necessary for international legal practice, and which go beyond traditional legal disciplines, as well as an eminently practical training in the areas of intensification so designed.

      To the above, it is necessary to add the design of the Master Final Project, which will be structured across the participation in an international moot court, of case study. Regarding the Moots, students will benefit from the leadership of Carlos III University of Madrid in these international legal competitions in which students participate as true lawyers of parties in international disputes. As per the Case Study, it is an initiative consisting in unfolding a transnational transaction, in which students must structure the different businesses that conform it, study the legal difficulties arising from local legal environments of the various jurisdictions involved, negotiate and defend initiative position of the respective parties, and seek creative solutions to protect those interests.

      The syllabus for this Double Master's degree is structured around three teaching terms and a compulsory work placement for which students will obtain 75 ECTS corresponding to the Master in Legal Practice and 45 ECTS of the Master in International Advocacy.

      The 120 total credits on the dual syllabus are broken down as follows:

      • In the first term, compulsory subjects on the Legal Practice course corresponding to the main part of this degree (28 ECTS in total, in the mornings) and a first part of the International Advocacy specialization composed of compulsory subjects (13 ECTS in total, in afternoon classes), and more specialized elective subjects (18 ECTS to enroll between the 1st and 2nd semester, also in the afternoon). This electives are grouped in intensification modules*, which will enable the students to choose one out of the two pre-defined paths: Transactional and Dispute Resolution.
      • In the second term some compulsory subjects will be studied, completing the technical training in Legal Practices and Professional Activity of the Master in Legal Practice (11 ECTS in total, in morning classes) and a second phase of the specialization (6 compulsory ECTS and the rest of ECTS of elective subjects, in the afternoons).
      • The third 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 to completing the two final dissertations for the master's degrees.

      15 of your ECTS credits will be recognized and at the end of the course you will have obtained two official Master's qualifications.
