Calendar and timetables

Academic Calendar

Class Timetable

We have been training jurists since 1973.

We are the private university with more experience in the Law field in Catalonia.

Why study at the UAO CEU?

1. Employability

90% of our students find a job after the completion of their studies, that is 4 percentage points above the Catalan universities average (Work placement Survey AQU 2014).

2. Double degree

The Universitat Abat Oliba CEU is a pioneer on the methodology that allows to combine two degrees and obtain in 5 years two university degrees. The degree in Political Science is taught on a blended learning modality, which makes easier for the students to coordinate it with the studies of the degree in Law.
For this reason, we offer a double degree in Law + Political Sciences in order to train law professionals who also have in-depth knowledge of Political Sciences, both in terms of theory and practice, ensuring that they acquire the highest levels of competence in both areas.
This degree provides a complementary training to the Law studies, giving UAO CEU students a different profile, improving their training and therefore widening their range of professional opportunities. As a result, students will become experts in the movements, players and activities in the political world, as well as current organisations and their policies.

3. Methodology

Teaching model based on the practical and personalised training by means of the case method, with case resolution in professional offices and the attendance to real trials in the provincial Courts. In addition to other activities, such as:

  • Practical seminars of Commercial Law
  • Rhetorical workshops of juridical argumentation
  • Simulations of legal proceedings and negotiation processes
  • Debate society
  • The Jurist Club
4. Internationalisation

In the United States by means of the programmes "International Political Economy" with the University of Chicago. The students receive an international training in English, linked to their official degree studies, and may carry out an additional international mobility stay.
In addition, we offer our students of the juridical field the chance to take a Master course in U.S. Law in Saint Thomas University of Minnesota.

5. Research

Chair of Gift & Task in Bioethics and Law.

They must be expressive, sociable, open-minded and have a view on how the world may develop in the future.

The student must also be proficient in a foreign language (preferably English).

  • Speaking using refined legal language - in other words, have sound knowledge of the formal and analytical language of Law.
  • Having a view of the Spanish legal system as a whole, including material, formal and knowledge sources in the environment in question.
  • Developing the abilities and skills required to apply Spanish law, and be able to assume roles in public or private institutions - including prosecution, advisory, defence, accusation, mediation or similar - which are related to the degree in Law.
  • Being able to evaluate, criticise, discuss, develop and present law proposals after understanding the social, economic, international context, etc., that they are presented in.
