Official Master’s Degree in LEGAL PROFESSION
 

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

Why UAO CEU?

1. Professionalisation

Law 34/2006, of 30th October, regulating access to the lawyer and solicitor professions, introduced the requirement for additional professional training beyond that of university level prior to admission to the bar.

This additional training must consist of an entry (bar) exam after earning 60 ECTS credits through courses accredited by the Ministry of Justice and 30 ECTS credits from a tutored internship.

In response to this new regulatory framework for teaching law and practising as a lawyer, Abat Oliba CEU University offers this legally required additional training in the form of a master's. It is a professional pathway that offers not only subjects directly related to legal practice, but also important subjects with transferable skills, such as ethics, negotiation and promotion of equality and human rights.

Alongside the Official Double Master’s Degree in Legal Profession + Logistics and International Trade, you will gain the knowledge required for international business which is crucial for imports and exports, as well as transport and logistics operations. You will specialise both academically and professionally in the field of trade and business, as well as transport and logistics operations related to international trade.

2. Experience

We have been training lawyers since 1973. We are the most experienced private university for teaching law in Catalonia. Similarly, the Master's in Logistics and International Trade is the longest-running master's at the University, and is now in its 20th year.

3. Preparation for entering the legal profession

All students on the Master's have personal access to Legal Quiz by the Lefebvre publishing house, a database with more than 1,500 questions similar to those asked on the bar exam, as well as two digital books: Memento Acceso a la Abogacía and Memento Ejercicio Profesional de la Abogacía.

4. Methodology

The Master's in Legal Profession is taught through a system combining three simultaneous methodologies:

  • lectures by prestigious jurists
  • seminars based on real case studies
  • workshops on practical and communicative skills and abilities

The Master's in Logistics features case studies from national and international businesses. Special emphasis is placed on soft skills as a key tool for future practising lawyers.

5. Further education
  • The Leadership Essentials programme from the Center for Creative Leadership (CCL) programme is designed to help students understand and discover their leadership potential and apply it on a daily basis.
  • European Port Experience: advanced study programmes on port management and business. It includes a four-day study trip to the ports of Rotterdam and Hamburg, two of the biggest in the world, as well as the Port of Barcelona, the third biggest in the world for cruise ships. All costs for the trip (flights and accommodation) are included in the course.
  • IATA DGR Course Cat. 3: The course is given within the master's programme and focuses on the regulations of transporting dangerous goods by air. Upon completion of the course, students may request the official IATA certificate.
  • The master's also includes group visits to businesses and institutions that give students a practical understanding of the different modules in the programme.
6. Professional development

The double master's offers internships in prestigious offices and businesses within the logistics and trade sector, both nationally and internationally. The Talent&Work Area at UAO CEU offers a vast jobs market and entrepreneurial advice.

UAO CEU currently has links with more than 2,300 companies with internship offers in more than 20 countries.

7. Teaching staff

The teaching staff is made up of academics, lawyers, magistrates and other experts from the legal world, chosen for their career achievements, prestige and teaching ability. There are also teachers with vast professional experience in the areas of logistics, transport and international business.

8. Employability and international outlook

CEU postgraduates have a 95% average employment rate. Students acquire the linguistic and cultural knowledge necessary to work anywhere in the world.

9. Information resources

The Library Service was created to support study and research with the aim of meeting all educational and scientific needs. It has long opening hours, including weekends, and is equipped with the latest technology.

UAO CEU also gives the university community a digital repository containing open-access publications including teaching materials, faculty and institutional research and work by students and alumni of the University.
