Why study at UAO CEU?

1. Professional focus

Law 34/2006, of 30 October, which regulates access to the professions of lawyer and court attorneys, introduced the requirement of a professional qualification in addition to a degree prior to registration with Professional Associations.

This additional training consists of taking an entrance exam (qualifying exam), after passing 60 ECTS credits of training courses accredited by the Ministry of Justice and 30 ECTS credits of supervised placements.

In order to adapt to this new regulatory framework for the teaching of Law and preparation for the practice of the legal profession, Abat Oliba CEU University provides the additional training now required by the law, integrating subjects directly related to the practice of the profession and other cross-cutting subjects that are particularly important (such as deontology, negotiation and training in the values of equality and respect for human rights).

Compliance is becoming increasingly essential for institutions and companies, motivated, among other factors, by new regulations and the assimilation of the tremendous advantages of implementing a good Compliance system.

This master’s degree aims to provide current and future professionals with the necessary tools in the field of Regulatory Compliance, delving into innovative fields such as cybersecurity and blockchain.
