GENERAL COURSE PROGRAMME

 

The first half of the course programme comprises the core subjects. This is followed by 138 compulsory ECTS credits, aimed at ensuring that students acquire the necessary skills, plus 6 ECTS credits corresponding to the Final Project, which is carried out in the final semester. The final 36 ECTS credits correspond to optional specialisation-aimed subjects and, as the case may be, work experience. These are taken in the final year of the course programme and allow students to configure their own line of specialisation.

The core credits cover ten subjects over the first two years and aim to provide students with the concepts and methodology of the Law, along with additional content in their training as lawyers (economics, accountancy and the origins and foundations of our legal system). The core subjects are Roman Law, History of the Law, Economics, Accountancy, the Law as it pertains to Freedom of Belief, Theory of Law and Philosophy of Law.

The compulsory subjects comprise Constitutional Law, Civil Law, Procedural Law, Administrative Law, Criminal Law, Commercial Law, Labour and Social Security Law, Financial and Tax Law, Public International Law and International Relations, Private International Law, European Union Law and the final project. 

The optional subjects are taken in the fourth year and are organised into three branches, based on the main professional profiles of Law Graduates, i.e.: the Legal Administration, business legal consultancy and the State Administration.

Routes must be chosen as a block. Passing the five subjects of any one route will be mentioned in a supplement to the degree. The aim of grouping the optional subjects into routes is to give students a more in-depth knowledge of a particular area of subjects, within the more general nature of the degree course as a whole (198 ECTS credits are common to the core and compulsory subjects, whilst the optional routes each account for 30 credits). Each of the three routes is made up of a coherent group of subjects, to guide students in the completion of their studies.


OPTIONAL SUBJECTS ROUTES

Route 1.  The Legal Administration:

Route 2.  Economic and Business Law

In addition to these routes, students are also offered the possibility of taking 6 ECTS credits through outside work experience. This work experience programme has been established as an optional part of the programme in order not to handicap students already engaged in labour or professional activities. Students may therefore choose freely between outside work experience, the optional subject “Introduction to International Relations” or an optional subject from either of the other two routes.
