When you graduate with an LL.M. in International Legal Practice from IE, you have all the tools needed for a career in the international practice of law. International law firms and company legal departments increasingly demand lawyers with a global perspective. We have designed our LL.M. program and its unique clinical methodology to provide you with the knowledge and skills necessary to move to the next level in your professional development.
You may choose between a program taught 100% in English, or a bilingual program in which half of the classes are taught in Spanish and the other half in English. The program taught in English provides students with a learning experience that combines international and European law with an MBA module, hands-on experience in an internship in a law firm or company legal department, and writing an LL.M. thesis under faculty supervision. The bilingual program, taught in English and Spanish, is ideal for students who would like more extensive study of Spanish law along with the MBA module. This option does not require a Spanish law degree, but does assume a background in the basic concepts of the civil law.
The LL.M. in International Legal Practice is a full-time program of postgraduate study which runs for ten months. All classes are held in Madrid. The program combines general coursework in legal and business areas with a broad offering of international electives. The program is structured in three trimesters, plus a preparatory pre-program and optional exchange semester.
The MBA Module which forms an integral part of the LL.M. in International Legal Practice includes courses usually taught as part of a graduate business program, including Economics, Accounting, Strategic Management, Financial Management, Communication Skills and Leadership Workshops.
The objective is to provide law students with broad knowledge of the fundamentals of business management and strategy, so that they will be better able to meet the needs of their future clients in business-related matters.
The IE Case Method used in the LL.M. in International Legal Practice is probably unlike anything you have experienced before in a law classroom. Instead of listening passively to lectures, you will be faced with more than 500 practical case problems over the duration of the program, each one of which requires you and your team to solve a range of legal and business problems and then draft the documents needed to achieve the objectives of your hypothetical client.
The IE Case Method is designed to replicate some three years of professional practice in just 10 intensive months. In most cases, the case problems are inspired by the professional experience of our faculty.
