University Master's Degree in Legal Practice - 7th edition


The educational objectives of this Master's Degree are tailored to match the purposes of Law 34/2006 of 30 October on requirements for practicing as professional solicitors or barristers, and the implementation of this law.

The master's degree is designed for graduates in Law or holders of an equivalent university bachelor's degree that meets the requirements established in Article 3 of the Regulation of Law 34/2006 of 30 October on access to the professions of solicitor and barrister.
