General course programme

The Master’s programme includes key issues required for the practice of advocacy, such as the legal bar association framework, and practice in techniques and tools for the profession of advocacy. The remaining matters focus on topics that could be divided into the four judicial areas, dealing with both extrajudicial and judicial aspects. The programme aims to combine general training in the competences, skills and attitudes required for the practice of advocacy with specific areas of expertise. The work experience combines both aspects, i.e., the application of what has been learned to the actual practice of advocacy. The Master’s Degree Final Project aims to consolidate the student's educational experience through the creation of a file or a report concerning a specific case that was dealt with over the course of their studies and work experience.
