Professional outings

It is claimed that the law degree is one of the university degrees that has more professional opportunities. However, its obvious humanistic nature requires a certain vocation when studying it and, without a doubt, the necessary compliance with an Ethical Code when exercising it. That said, the best known possibilities are:

  • Free exercise of the profession
  • Attorneys or solicitors
  • Oppositions: to the body of notaries; property and commercial registrar; magistrate; fiscal; Judicial secretary; to the body of officials of international organizations
  • Advising
  • Consulting
  • Corps of Justice Administration officials: judge; magistrate; State Attorney; lawyers of the State Administration; lawyers of high advisory bodies; civil administration technician; farm or labor inspector
  • Private company
  • Banks
  • Business

2. Prepared to be the best in the oppositions

In parallel to the law degree, our students can participate in the Opposition Intensification Program, which is done in collaboration with the Notarial College of Valencia, the Deanship of the Courts of Valencia and the Office of the Prosecutor of the Valencian Community, among other entities. Through this program, those who are interested in the world of opposition begin their preparation from the second year.

This is a free and voluntary program that prepares you to face traditional legal oppositions. Two itineraries are offered to choose by the student: one oriented to notaries and records, while the other focuses on judiciary and prosecution.
