The Global Master in International Sports Law is aimed and focused on the sector of already experienced lawyers, or other persons who are already holding a B.A. degree, who have proved experience and knowledge in the field of Sport Law or Sport Management, and who are interested in studying a Masters Degree in International Sports Law.

About

Due to the fact that this program will be offered to already practicing and experienced lawyers or sport managers with ongoing activities, the studies will be carried out by correspondence and on an online basis. However, within the term of the program, three encounters will take place in Madrid for a period not lasting more than two days for each encounter. 

Online learning can provide learning outcomes that are comparable or even superior to those of conventional educational formats, as it is proved that on executive programs the students, which already have professional experience, work better when self-directed, as they are shaped by the accumulation of authentic personal experience. Given their goal-oriented approach to learning and an ever more crowded personal calendar, a self-paced asynchronous design has proven to be a most effective instructional approach for online course formats.

This means that given the right tools and with the instructors playing a key role, the online methodology complemented by the encounters taking place in Madrid will make the perfect combination to provide the students with the knowledge and skills they meant to reach when they joined the Master. 

Each student will have a personal code with which he/she will access the classes on the website. The different classes are scheduled to be posted on-line every two weeks with the specific directions given by the lecturer, specifying the deadline for the students to send their cases, essays or exams.
