This Legal Profession and Maritime Law programme at Abat Oliba - CEU University is for those interested in studying a speciality at the same time as practising law in companies from the marine law industry.



1. Professionalisation

Law 34/2006, of 30th October, regulating access to the lawyer and solicitor professions, introduced the requirement for additional professional training beyond that of university level prior to admission to the bar.

This additional training must consist of an entry (bar) exam after earning 60 ECTS credits through courses accredited by the Ministry of Justice and 30 ECTS credits from a tutored internship.

In response to this new regulatory framework for teaching law and preparing to practise as a lawyer, Abat Oliba - CEU University offers this legally required additional training in the form of a master's. It is a professional pathway that offers not only subjects directly related to legal practice, but also important subjects with transferable skills, such as ethics, negotiation and promotion of equality and human rights.

Alongside the Official Double Master's in Maritime Law, you will immerse yourself in the international maritime legal system and the world of shipping import and export. 90% of all trade on the planet takes place over the oceans, making it a powerful international industry.

The master's trains students in aspects of maritime law and business based on Spanish and English legislation, as the vast majority of contracts in the shipping industry are subject to Common Law. This acts as a de facto international legal framework for an industry which is key to worldwide economic development. 

2. Experience

We have been training lawyers since 1973. We are the most experienced private university for teaching law in Catalonia. Similarly, the Master's in Maritime Law is one of the longest-running master's at the University, and is now in its 8th year.

3. Preparation for entering the legal profession

All students on the Legal Profession and Maritime Law Master's have personal access to Legal Quiz by the Lefebvre publishing house, a database with more than 1,500 questions similar to those asked on the bar exam, as well as two digital books: Memento Acceso a la Abogacía and Memento Ejercicio Profesional de la Abogacía.
