This is the first master's degree programme in Spain, and one of the very few in Europe, to adopt a global perspective of law. The master's degree in European and Global Law offers the knowledge and training a global jurist and lawyer requires in the 21st century. It combines transnational, international, comparative, and global perspectives with a European emphasis, thus transcending the narrow, domestic views of the law that have been characteristic of many law studies for centuries. It also adopts a theoretical as well as a practical approach.
Taught in Barcelona, it is inspired by a cosmopolitan and global view with a European flavour.
The Master in European and Global Law is addressed to students with a special interest in international legal issues. It offers advanced legal education in various fields of European, international, and global law, and aspires to shape valuable professional profiles for lawyers, legal experts, consultants, and researchers. Most of our students come from very diverse countries and regions in Europe, America, Asia,… Such cosmopolitan environment is the academic springboard for future legal careers around the world.
