Introduction

The master's degree in Legal Practice is designed to provide specialized training for legal experts who wish to focus their careers on practice as lawyers. It therefore covers the prerequisites for legal practice established by Law 34/2006 of 30 October on access to the professions of lawyer and solicitor and the corresponding regulations set out by Royal Decree 775/2011 of 3 June. Accordingly, the programme is taught through the UB Faculty of Law and the Barcelona Bar Association (ICAB).
The course provides solid, integrated training based on the principle of excellence. It is both academic and eminently practical, and can be oriented toward developing a comprehensive set of professional capacities in the specific area of legal practice in which each student wishes to focus their professional activity.
This degree is addressed both to recent graduates intending to practise law, in compliance with the requirements set by Law34/2006, and to established professionals who wish to update their knowledge, work in a specific professional capacity or venture into the complex world of legal practice.

Learning objectives

This master's degree aims to meet the requirements of Act 34/2006 on admission to the professions of lawyer and solicitor. According to this Act, law graduates who wish to become qualified lawyers and practise the profession must first pass a specific training course and then sit a state examination. Consequently, the learning objectives, the teaching approach and the contents of the master's degree are determined by the characteristics of the aforementioned examination.
Another objective of this course is to provide solid, comprehensive, academic and essentially practical training for current professionals who wish to update their knowledge and develop their professional capacities: in other words, for those who wish to renew their professional skills.
In short, the aim is to provide advanced, specific training for professional practice and above all, to prepare students for the professional aptitude examination required to become a lawyer. For this reason, the master's degree is organized jointly by the UB Faculty of Law and the Barcelona Bar Association's School for Legal Practice (EPJ-ICAB).
