Master of Laws Degrees 2017 in Lausanne Switzerland. We at ISDE, whose pioneering commitment to the integration of students in law firms inspired the creation of the new Masters in Admission to the Practice of Law, believe that although the programme provides the practical training essential for the practice of the profession, there are two aspects that it does not fully cover : specialisation and training for the practice of international law. Our proven experience in the field prompted us to consider the introduction of a programme that would complete the Masters in Admission to the Practice of Law, which we provide in conjunction with the prestigious Carlos III University of Madrid. The formula for achieving this goal for an institution of the calibre of ISDE is as simple as it is essential: the Masters in Admission to the Practice of Law is now provided together with the best private Masters degrees, given that the specialist programmes that ISDE has been offering for years have earned it a place in the most important Spanish and international rankings.The result is a masters that is unique in the sector, and which has the added benefit of a second practical training stage during which the student will become a real member of the “ecosystem” of a law firm, not a mere observer. The combination of two highly prestigious Masters programmes, together with the specialisation and international experience that leading law firms require today will give graduates a competitive advantage when seeking employment in the legal market. Objectives The objective of this double Masters degree is to prepare students to meet the requirements of major law firms today. This means providing specialised training geared towards the practice of international law. Globalisation had had an undeniable impact on the field of law and also on the practice of law.The training of a top lawyer should take account of the needs underlying this phenomenon, which tends to bring together the different known legal systems through the approximation of the different legal institutions. The progressive publification of law is giving rise to increasing legal complexity. This, in turn, creates the need for specialists capable of meeting the demands of customers in a timely manner. And this specialisation must come about through appropriate training in the fundamentals of law and a comprehensive overview thereof. Accordingly, students choosing to pursue a double Masters degree will obtain a double benefit: On the one hand, completion of the best Masters in Admission to the Practice of Law, which ISDE offers in conjunction with the prestigious Carlos III University of Madrid.This ensures that students obtain an in-depth understanding of the practical knowledge required by the new admissions system and have a greater likelihood of passing the national examination for admission to the profession. On the other hand, our specialised international Masters programmes, where the student will have the opportunity to be part of a small group comprised of national and foreign students and professors, is designed to prepare students for entry into their choice of specialisation. In this sense, the programme was born with a clear objective: to transmit a mechanism of legal reasoning and, consequently, preparation in all areas of legal practice, with the aim of gradually aspiring to specialisation. Moreover, the student will also receive instruction in international relations and foreign trade, so necessary nowadays on account of the present-day world economic system. Admission and acceptance profile: The basic requirement for admission to the double masters is to have obtained, or to be in the process of obtaining, prior to the commencement of the course, a Bachelor of Law degree, a BA in Law or other BA degree attesting that the applicant has the skills laid down in Article 3.2 of the regulation implementing the Spanish Law on Admission to the Practice of Law. Furthermore, in accordance with the provisions of the university regulation, applications will also be considered from foreign students with degrees to accredit the skills set out in Article 3 of the aforementioned Law. Native Spanish-speakers will be required to have a good command of spoken and written English and non-Spanish speaking applicants will have to demonstrate that their knowledge of spoken and written Spanish is at least equivalent to the B2 DELE level (Diploma de Español como lengua extranjera) awarded by the Instituto Cervantes. Applicants with basic language skills, but which do not meet the minimum levels required may be provisionally accepted on condition that they take an in- tensive course in the relevant language to achieve the minimum required level. Foreign students should bear in mind that the Ministry of Justice of the Kingdom of Spain has not yet taken a decision as to their possible participation in the en- trance examination and the practice of the profession in Spain. Applications may be sent electronically or by ordinary mail. Applications and the required documentation should be sent to the email or postal address of ISDE's Admissions Department. The decision to admit an applicant rests with the Masters Academic Committee. [-]
