The first objective is to enable students to acquire the necessary professional skills as to exercise the professions of lawyer or of solicitor (professional specialisation course type).

Secondly, this master's degree is also aimed at students who wish to gain more advanced academic training than that provided by a bachelor's degree qualification. This would be the case of students who wish to exercise the legal professions subject to specific access tests or that of professionals who need to extend their specialised knowledge.

Thirdly, this master's degree is also aimed at those students who aspire to do a doctorate and who wish to devote themselves to teaching and research.

Tracks (orientative)

* Law, Administration and Public Policies
* Law, Business and Society
* Law, International Order and Integration
* Law and Solving Disputes
* Methods of Legal Analysis



Although each student, following a tutorial, draws up their own track, the master offers five general tracks:

* Law, administration and public policies:
Students study the principles and factors that determine the makeup of our states and the functioning of public administration and which guide public decision making policies: from providing the basic functions of security and justice right up to achieving an appropriate framework for private relations via market regulation.
* Law, business and society:
Students will study the body of legislation concerning the system of exchanges and the performance of economic and other social agents. The course also involves an interdisciplinary analysis of structural regulation as well as of specific activities from the point of view of public and private law.
* Law, international order and integration:
This track focuses on the institutional and legal aspects of the internationalisation of economic, social and cultural life: ranging from aspects related to the economy and trade right up to the phenomenon of migration and human rights.
* Law and solving disputes:
This track focuses on disputes and how they can be solved. It covers traditional judicial procedures (civil litigation, penal procedures as well as administrative, labour, constitutional, Community, international and ecclesiastic legal procedures. It also looks at alternative procedures (negotiation, conciliation, mediation and arbitration).
* Methods of legal analysis:
The methodological aspects of legal practice, both in relation to research and to the creation and application of law, without leaving aside what is traditionally known as "legal culture".


In the professional specialisation course type, this master's degree includes an internship (250 hours) in the offices of lawyers and other legal practitioners, legal offices and public institutions. Students are to do their internship during the third and fourth term of the course, preferably.

In the academic and research course types, students are to elaborate a piece of research work, supervised by an academic tutor, which must be drafted throughout the course and defended publicly before an academic panel.


Candidates for acceptance to the Master in Legal Sciences must provide accreditation that they have obtained or are in position to obtain an accredited undergraduate degree (Bachelor degree or recognised equivalent degree from an accredited Higher Education Institution). Degrees in any academic field of study will be accepted.
