Master in International Law, Foreign Trade and International Relations

General

Program Description

Globalization is a fact and the training of lawyers must adapt to this phenomenon, which is changing legal practice. Today it is highly likely that even family businesses face complex legal issues, involving immigration law, international labor law, international trade, or complex regulations on tax law.

Faced with this phenomenon, training in law schools does not sufficiently prepare lawyers to deal with it. This requires additional specialization and that it comes from the hand of specialists accustomed to working in this new environment. Furthermore, this preparation cannot be limited to a mere study of the different subjects that compose it. More than studied, it must be lived in an environment that reproduces the real cases that we will encounter and the know-how to solve them successfully.

For all these reasons, this program is a specialist in the most recognized firms and organizations that transmit their knowledge and skills to students in the first phase, who face the same challenges that they assume in their profession. So later, in the internship phase of the program, welcome them in their own offices with a view to their final incorporation.
