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 30 October, regulating access to the lawyer and solicitor professions, introduced the demand 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 preparing to practice 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.

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. Furthermore, it gives access to two digital books: Memento: Acceso a la Abogacía and Memento: Ejercicio Profesional de la Abogacía.

2. Experience

We have been training lawyers since 1973. We are the most experienced private university for teaching law in Catalonia.
