    The Master in Advanced Public Law Studies offers the development of knowledge and skills for the challenges faced by the future advanced legal researcher: the need to deal with complex problems in a constantly changing internationalized context that creates uncertainty and, consequently, requires solutions inspired by an intense component of specialization but also interdisciplinarity.

    Once obtained the master degree, students can access directly to the PhD program.

    This master also provides the students with voluntary traineeships in prestigious institutions belonging to the public or non-profit sector.

      Master in Advanced Studies in Public Law
      MASTER IN LEGAL PRACTICE (MARCH 2020 ED.)

       ✎ │ Double degree begins in September 2019
       

      Admission period closed

       

      The UC3M offers students the possibility of jointly studying 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 Advanced Studies in Public Law, 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 Advanced Studies in Public Law

      The Master in Advanced Public Law Studies offers the development of knowledge and skills for the challenges faced by the future advanced legal researcher: the need to deal with complex problems in a constantly changing internationalized context that creates uncertainty and, consequently, requires solutions inspired by an intense component of specialization but also interdisciplinarity.

      Once obtained the master degree, students can access directly to the PhD program.

      This master also provides the students with voluntary traineeships in prestigious institutions belonging to the public or non-profit sector.
