Student profile

Type of Degree

The basic qualities considered essential for students taking the Degree in Law include an awareness of and an interest in finding just solutions to the economic, political and social problems of our times, a critical approach and the capacity to reason beyond rote learning, and an interest in study and reading, not just of legal books. Law students should also possess the capacity to work as part of a team and should be able to present their arguments persuasively and fluently, both in writing and orally.

This is an officially recognised University Degree, valid throughout the European Higher Education Area.

WORLD HERITAGE

This Degree complies with European Higher Education Area requirements

During the course of their studies, Law students will develop the skills necessary for professional practice, including an understanding of how the main public and private institutions work, a basic knowledge of legislation, the capacity to apply the knowledge acquired to professional situations and transfer learning beyond the teaching context, an ability to reason using legal argumentation whilst maintaining a commitment to ethical conduct, and the capacity for independent learning, in order to prepare them for postgraduate studies.

Career opportunities The Degree in Law at the University of Alcalá is aimed at providing students with a general legal education oriented towards preparing them for professional practice in companies, law firms, public institutions, government and legal organisations. The Degree also qualifies students to study the Master’s Degree in Law, which in turn qualifies graduates for professional practice as lawyers or solicitors.

Course contents The Degree in Law course programme consists of 240 credits, comprising all the theoretical and practical knowledge students are expected to acquire. The course includes fundamental aspects of this branch of knowledge, obligatory and optional subjects, seminars, work experience (external practical training), supervised projects, the Final Project and other educational activities. One of the most representative aspects of the education we offer is Work Experience. Bearing in mind the increasing number of career opportunities currently afforded by Law studies, we offer a diverse range of Work Experience possibilities. These are divided into two main paths: Judicial Work Experience and non-Judicial Work Experience. There are two variants of Judicial Work Experience, external and internal, depending on whether students undertake their work experience in the Courts (external) or the Faculty’s Courtrooms (internal). This module enables students to familiarise themselves with legal and professional practice in civil, commercial, criminal, administrative and labour law, fundamentally, in all their diverse aspects. In addition, the Faculty of Law offers a variety of work experience possibilities with public institutions, law firms, banks and companies, for students who wish to orientate their professional education towards other fields (nonjudicial work experience).

The study plan for the Degree in Law can be taken in two ways: full-time, over four years, and part-time, over eight years. In the second case, students usually combine their studies with employment. Course contents remain identical, the only difference between the two possibilities being the length of time taken to complete the course.
