Program description

Master's Degree in Law

The university master in law is regulated in Act 34/2006, 30th October, and developed further by Royal Decree 775/2011, 3rd June. In congruence with that, the Faculty of Law of the University of La Laguna – working with the Santa Cruz de Tenerife Bar Association – rolled out a training programme in academic year 2014/15 to provide law graduates with the training necessary to practise law, once they have passed their national aptitude test. Hence, it covers society’s demand for providing qualified training to people who are going to be the basic partners in ensuring justice is done, with the quality of the service provided, which will translate directly into the legal guardianship that our Constitution guarantees for all citizens.
