Why UAO CEU?

1. Preparation for doctorates

The Official Master's Degree in Public Law is an official advanced course focused on giving students specific knowledge of the basics of Public Law and preparing them for future access to a doctorate programme in Law.

The Master's provides all the methodological training needed for rigorous research. This makes it the ideal academic training ground to develop and defend a thesis in legal education.

2. Experience

Abat Oliba CEU University began its law courses in 1973, making it the first private school (later becoming a university) to train lawyers in Catalonia.

The institution's long history, the academic accreditation of its professors and the professional experience of its range of collaborators guarantee educational quality.

3. Methodology

The Master's is taught through a system combining four simultaneous methodologies:
- Lectures
- Seminars based on real case studies
- Practical workshops
- Master's dissertation with a tutor

4. Format

The Master's is taught in a blended-learning format. The design and organisation of the course was specifically chosen to make it fully compatible with a job in the legal profession, whether for judges, lawyers, notaries, registrars, tax inspectors, barristers, court clerks for public authorities, etc.

5. Faculty

Our teaching staff is made up of academics, lawyers, magistrates and other figures from the legal world selected based on their doctorate-level education, career, prestige and educational skills.

6. Information resources

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

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