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

     

    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.
