Training lawyers since 1973

We are the most experienced private university for teaching law in Catalonia

Why UAO CEU?

1. Course satisfaction

86% of our students are satisfied with their law studies, the second-highest level out of all Catalan universities (AQU 2017).

2. Employment quality

82.3% of our students are satisfied with the employment quality associated with their degree, 15 points above average (AQU 2017).

3. Double qualification

Abat Oliba CEU University is a pioneer in the methodology that allows students to combine two qualifications and gain two degrees in five years. The Degree in Political Science is taught in a blended learning format, allowing students to combine it with their Law studies.

This double qualification aims to train future law professionals who also have a solid knowledge of political science. With a theoretical and practical understanding of the subjects, they will be fully competent in both.

This degree gives UAO CEU Law students extra-curricular education that contributes to their unique profile, improving their expertise and by extension, broadening their range of job opportunities. With this training, they will become experts in political movements, figureheads and activity, as well as current organisations and their policies.

4. Methodology

A practical, personalised educational model that sees students study cases, resolve cases with law firms and attend real trials at the Provincial Court. As well as other activities such as:

  • Practical seminars on maritime law
  • Workshops on rhetoric and legal debates
  • Legal behaviour and negotiation role plays
  • Debating society
  • The Jurist's Club
5. International programmes

We offer all law students the chance to study the Master's in US Law at the University of Saint Thomas in Minnesota.

6. Legal Tech

Students in their fourth year of Law are trained in the application of new technologies to law through the Wolters Kluwer Certifica programme. Students enrich their education by building their legal and technological capabilities regarding management, public speaking and networking.

7. Work & Talent Area

We meet industry workers through a system of internships and jobs that integrates the needs of businesses and gets the very best out of every student:

  • Professional Guidance Service
  • Internship and jobs service
  • Field of entrepreneurship
  • Field of innovation
  • Relationship with the business
8. Progressive International Development

A new plan that encourages students to think internationally from their first year to their fourth.

1: Students will get experience interacting and researching online with other European universities.
2: We explore the meaning and the effects of international politics and law through short trips to Brussels (EU) and Geneva (UNESCO).
3: We prepare students for the international law environment through conferences with MEPs and international experts.
4: We widen students' horizons through the Erasmus programme or through semester-long stays in our partner universities in the United States, Mexico and the Netherlands.

Students also have the advantage of being able to study the Master of Laws LL.M. in US Law at the University of Saint Thomas, Minnesota.

9. Complete programme

With the career-focused Official Master's Degree in Legal Profession, students get additional skills that are required by law.

10. Research

The Gift & Task Foundation on Bioethics and Law.
