About

The main objective of the Legal Profession programme of Universitat Internacional de Catalunya which is clearly vocational, is to enable students to enter the legal profession.

Overview

The Master's Degree in the Legal Profession at UIC Barcelona is unique because:

  • In one programme it covers all aspects of advice and litigation in a practical manner.
  • Teaching is based on case studies, with the use of role-playing to simulate real professional situations. The Faculty has exclusive facilities such as a mock courtroom. 
  • The teaching staff come from the legal world and are active professionals. 
  • The course offers students the option to take the fast track bar exam preparation course. 

You may choose from two optional tracks:

  • Development of professional competences (soft-skills), which range from negotiation techniques to leadership skills and emotional intelligence.
  • Specialised legal training, with a focus on the methodology applicable to the competitive bar exam.  

Developed in collaboration with the Barcelona Bar Association, the Legal Profession programme of Universitat Internacional de Catalunya includes a specific semester of work placements in major legal firms which take part in the programme.
