Master's Degree in Access to the Lawyer's profession

The Madrid Autonomous University Law Faculty has designed the curriculum of a University Master’s degree for the Admission to the Profession of Lawyer comprising 90 ECTS credits (60 ECTS classroom-based credits + 30 ECTS work placement credits). Its objectives are: to complement the training of Law graduates with the knowledge, skills and tools needed to work effectively as a lawyer both advising and litigating; and to prepare students to pass the nationwide aptitude test, convened each year by the Ministry of Justice and the Ministry of Education.

This Master’s Degree is a reference among Spanish postgraduate programmes for training lawyers owing to its excellent teaching team made up of Faculty lecturers and highly respected experts (lawyers, notaries, registrars, etc), and its outstanding facilities (classrooms with audiovisual equipment, courtroom, library, group work rooms). Additionally, students can undertake work placements in some of the top law firms operating in Spain, in-house legal departments of large companies and other prestigious public or private institutions.
