  • Master's Degree in Law

    General Information

    Teaching Languages:
    Spanish
    Places:
    100
    Duration:
    1 year and a half (90 ECTS credits)
    Access Requirements:

    To be admitted to the Master's degree, you must be in possession of the Bacherlor's Degree in Law or another equivalent Degree title that meets the requirements established in article 3 of the Law n. 34/2006, October 30th, on access to the professions of Lawyer and Procurator of the Courts, approved by Royal Decree n. 775/2011, June 3rd.

    In accordance with Royal Decree n. 967/2014, November 21st, of Homologation of Foreign Titles of Higher Education to Official Spanish University Degrees or Master's Degrees that give access to a regulated profession in Spain, all foreign students who wish to take the Master's Degree in access to the practice of law, whether European or not, must present a legalized title in accordance with the procedure established in that regulation, according to the interpretation given by the Ministry of Education and Culture and Sport. Information on this matter is available on the website of the Ministry of Education, Culture and Sport Web: Ministry Link

    Applicants with degrees obtained in European higher education institutions of the EHEA must provide validation of the title by a Spanish University. Applicants with degrees obtained in States that are not members of the European Union or signatories to the Agreement on the European Economic Area must be in possession of the credential that accredits their approval.

    In the case of people who have a Degree issued by a higher education institution of the EHEA that empowers in the country issuing the Degree to access official Master's Degrees, as well as students with a foreign Degree (external to the EHEA) without homologation, provided that the level of training is equivalent to the undergraduate degrees and that enables in the issuing country to access official Master's Degrees, they may be admitted to the Master's Degree in the case that this title is pending the approval process. In any case, it is the sole responsibility of the student to finish the Master with the duly homologated Title of higher studies. In the event that at the end of the Master's degree the homologation has not concluded, you will not be able to request the inscription in the official exam of access to the practice of law that calls twice a year the Ministry of Justice. Therefore, it is recommended that foreign students previously homologate their higher education degree before applying at the University for a place on the Master's Degree that gives access to the practice of law.

    Professional Opportunities

    This Master's Degree meets the requirements of Law 34/2006 on the access to the professions of Lawyer and Attorney in Spain and of the provisions of the regulation of this law stated on Royal Decree 775/2011 of 3 June 2011.

    It constitutes the mandatory specialized training in order to practice law under the terms of the above-mentioned regulation. There are three institutions collaborating in this programme: the Escuela de Práctica Jurídica del Principado de Asturias (the School of Legal Practice of the Principality of Asturias), the Ilustre Colegio de Abogados de Oviedo and the Ilustre Colegio de Abogados de Gijón (the Bar Associations of Oviedo and Gijón).

    The realization of the Master in Law, by itself, does not qualify for the exercise of the profession, being necessary to pass the mandatory State exam by the Ministry of Justice.
