The Doctorate Program in Law is a solid, ambitious and future-oriented proposal that brings together practically all branches of Law. This option also escaped from an atomization of lines of research in order to consolidate multiple perspectives in seven main lines that allow to provide this formative stage with an approach that surpasses the division into areas of knowledge, favoring synergies between groups and that also allows the sum of critical mass and the display of sound scientific results.PresentationThe program is endorsed not only by the actuality of significant financial support, captured in competitive calls from different fields (regional, national and international), but, perhaps most importantly, by a track record of the teachers and groups that make it up that accredits that such academic, scientific and financial recognition is not temporary, but has well-established roots and a solid trajectory.
The seven lines of research are suitable for carrying out research of a purely academic nature or closer to the legal practice of each day. The Academic Committee of the Program will ensure that theses are carried out in both channels and will ensure the maximum dissemination of those that have a special connection with the company, the Administration and the market. From a methodological point of view, the purpose of this Program is to adequately attend not only to the final product obtained by the doctorate (the thesis), but above all to the process (teaching / learning of which is legal research), convinced that the Competencies and skills acquired during the aforementioned process will train the future doctor for a wide variety of professional opportunities.ProfileThey will be able to access, without the need to take training complements:Students from Master's degree studies of a predominantly legal nature offered by the USC, or by other Spanish or European universities.
Students with the DEA degree obtained through the legal programs of the USC or other universities carried out according to the regulations in force at the time they were carried out.Other profiles:
In the case of other types of profiles different from the above, the CAPD will evaluate each case individually, with the possibility of requiring additional training (up to 15 ECTS credits) in subjects or modules of predominantly legal content.
In the case of other profiles that have not completed a Master's degree, an equivalence of training in research credits will be required, at least equal to those of the master's degree that gives direct access.
Graduates according to foreign educational systems will be able to access, without the need for their homologation, after verification by the University that it accredits a level of training equivalent to that of the official Spanish university master's degree and that it empowers in the country issuing the degree to access to doctoral studies. This admission will not imply, in any case, the homologation of the previous title of which the interested party is in possession or its recognition for purposes other than that of access to doctoral studies.
Academic record of the undergraduate and postgraduate degrees that give access to the Doctorate, valued according to the Qualification Regulations and evaluation of the academic records of the USC (100%)
As a quality criterion in the admission of students, an admission limit for doctoral students per director / tutor and year is established. It is intended to guarantee the necessary attention to the students, so that each person in charge of management tasks may assume a maximum of 2 students per year on a full-time basis or 4 in the case of co-management.
