Academic Calendar

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

Why study at the UAO CEU?

1. Professionalising nature

Law 34/2006 of 30 October, which regulates the access to the legal professions and to the Court solicitor profession, introduced to the Spanish legal ordinance the demand for an additional professional training, apart from the university training, previous to the registration in the corresponding Professional College.
This additional training consists of taking an entrance exam (authorisation exam) after having passed 60 ECTS credits of training courses accredited by the Law Ministry and 30 ECTS credits of tutored internships.

With a view to adapting to the new Law teaching regulating framework and to preparing for the practice of the Law profession, the Universitat Abat Oliba CEU has considered it convenient, for the sake of a comprehensive training which combines the theoretical and the practical formation, to offer this additional training required by the Law through a professionalising master’s degree, which integrates in the theoretical teaching both those subjects directly related to this profession and especially important subjects (such as deontology, negotiation and formation on the values of equality and respect for the human rights).

2. Experience

We have been training jurists since 1973. We are the private university with more experience in the Law field in Catalonia. 

3. Methodology

This master’s degree combines three simultaneous teaching methodologies: 

  • Lectures given by well-known jurists
  • Discussion seminars on practical cases based on real assumptions
  • Study workshops of practical and communicative abilities and aptitudes
4. Professional development

Real internship programme in important professional firms. Job Listing at a national and international level with more than 2,300 associate businesses with internship offers in more than 20 countries.

5. Faculty

Our faculty is composed by academics, lawyers, magistrates and other professionals of the Law, selected for their careers, prestige and teaching capacities.

6. Employability

The average work placement rate is 95% in the postgraduate studies of the CEU.

7. Information resources

The Library Service is conceived as a support unit for study and research. Its most important objective is to meet the educative and scientific demands. It has convenient opening hours, including weekends, with the best computer equipment. In addition, the UAO CEU offers to all the University community a vast digital storage, with free access to its publications from its docent, research or institutional activities carried out by teachers, students or former students from the University.
