Master's degree in Legal Practice - 4th edition

The main objective is to improve the professional skills of lawyers as important partners in the administration of justice, and thus to guarantee high-quality advice, legal defence and technical representation so that citizens can exercise the fundamental right to effective legal protection.

The Faculty of Law offers a special programme that enables students to simultaneously study the Master's Degree in Legal Practice in conjunction with another university master's course taught at the Faculty of Law and thus obtain a law specialisation. For more information please consult the Faculty of Law's website.
