This International Relations and Master of Laws MA/LLM dual degree offered at IE University combines two rigorous programmes to strike the perfect balance between a holistic international perspective and an advanced legal education. The programme prepares students to face any global challenge with an innovative and sustainable vision. 


The International Relations and Master of Laws MA/LLM dual degree offered at IE University teaches them to manage global legal transactions with a business approach through international exchanges, legal venture clinics and practical methodology.

In today’s globalized world, an international perspective is not just an advantage—it’s a necessity. By working directly with large companies, international law firms, organizations, governments and NGOs, students gain a global mindset that helps them excel in any position and any sector. In just 22 months, they acquire the skills, knowledge and experience necessary to go out in the world and make a difference—whether through legal practice, policy-making, entrepreneurship or any other area.

Career Opportunities

After completing the Master in International Relations, students switch gears and begin the Master of Laws (LL.M.), gaining highly specialized legal expertise complemented by a broader set of skills. In the Master of Laws (LL.M.), students can either 1) gain a General LL.M. with a broad understanding of International Business Law, International Dispute Resolution and Intellectual Property and Technology, or 2) choose to specialize in one of the three subjects, paving their own individual path to career success.
