The International LLM will prepare you for a career in the international practice of law. The program, specialized in Global Business law and European law, combines general coursework in the legal area with an MBA module, composed of at least six MBA courses. The program is structured in three trimesters, plus a preparatory pre-program and an optional exchange semester.
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.
The MBA Module which forms an integral part of the International LLM includes Economics, Accounting, Strategic Management, Financial Management, Negotiation, Communication Skills and Human Resources.
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.Close
The IE Case Method used in the International LLM 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 draft the documents needed to achieve the objectives of your hypothetical client.
The IE Case Method is designed to replicate two years of professional practice in just 10 intensive months. In most cases, the problems are inspired by the professional experience of our faculty.Close
The LL.M. class represents a unique opportunity for you to network and share diverse backgrounds, points of view and cultures while working with lawyers trained in different legal systems.
On completion of your coursework, you may apply for an additional semester at one of our partner schools in the US, Latin America or Asia. Incoming exchange students from these schools also add to the diversity of your courses and group work in Madrid.
We welcome applications from visiting students, who study for one semester in the LL.M. program and may be able to transfer credits back to their home law school. For more information, please clickClose
