Access + Master in International Law, Foreign Trade and International Relations

  • Along with the best training for access to the practice of law, prepare yourself to be able to practice in an international context. Globalization is a fact and the training of lawyers must adapt to this phenomenon, which is changing legal practice. Today, even family businesses are likely to face complex legal issues, involving immigration law, international labour law, international trade or complex tax law regulations.

    In the face of this phenomenon we find that training in law schools does not sufficiently prepare lawyers to deal with it. This requires additional specialisation and that this comes from specialists who are used to working in this new environment. Moreover, this preparation cannot be limited to a mere study of the different subjects that make up the law. More than studied, it must be lived in an environment that reproduces the real cases we will encounter and know how to solve them successfully.

    Therefore, in this double program, specialists from the most recognized firms and organizations transmit their knowledge and skills to the students in the first phase, who are faced with the same challenges that they assume in their profession, and then take them to their own offices, in the internship phase of the program, with a view to their definitive incorporation.
