We at ISDE, whose pioneering commitment to the integration of students in law firms inspired the creation of the new Masters in Admission to the Practice of Law, believe that although the programme provides the practical training essential for the practice of the profession, there are two aspects that it does not fully cover : specialisation and training for the practice of international law.
Our proven experience in the field prompted us to consider the introduction of a programme that would complete the Masters in Admission to the Practice of Law, which we provide in conjunction with the prestigious Carlos III University of Madrid.The formula for achieving this goal for an institution of the calibre of ISDE is as simple as it is essential: the Masters in Admission to the Practice of Law is now provided together with the best private Masters degrees, given that the specialist programmes that ISDE has been offering for years have earned it a place in the most important Spanish and international rankings.The result is a masters that is unique in the sector, and which has the added benefit of a second practical training stage during which the student will become a real member of the “ecosystem” of a law firm, not a mere observer.
The combination of two highly prestigious Masters programmes, together with the specialisation and international experience that leading law firms require today will give graduates a competitive advantage when seeking employment in the legal market.
The objective of this double Masters degree is to prepare students to meet the requirements of major law firms today. This means providing specialised training geared towards the practice of international law. Globalisation had had an undeniable impact on the field of law and also on the practice of law.The training of a top lawyer should take account of the needs underlying this phenomenon, which tends to bring together the different known legal systems through the approximation of the different legal institutions.
The progressive publification of law is giving rise to increasing legal complexity. This, in turn, creates the need for specialists capable of meeting the demands of customers in a timely manner. And this specialisation must come about through appropriate training in the fundamentals of law and a comprehensive overview thereof.

ACADEMIC PROGRAM (Second Phase)
By the end of the first stage of the programme, students will be equipped with the tools and instruments required
to practice law.
To further hone their skills and to demonstrate their practical knowledge, students will work in a national or international
law firm during the second stage of the programme. In the firm, they will be mentored by a lawyer-tutor
who will acquaint them with the work of a law firm and the legal matters in which the student will be involved.
The company where students will perform their work experience is determined by the Masters programme director
on the basis of the student’s academic performance, personal profile and the requirements of the law firm itself.
As a result, the success of the work experience programme and effective student orientation are assured.
Through the Master´s Final Project, students have the opportunity to deepen the study of a topic of interest, applying
knowledge and ability to solve problems in new or unfamiliar environments within wider contexts related to their area
of study.The final project will be able to integrate knowledge and handle the complexity of formulating judgments based
on information that is incomplete or limited, including considerations on social and ethical responsibilities linked to the application of their knowledge and judgments.
