  • The Law Degree is designed to provide graduates with enough theoretical knowledge and academic skills to gain an understanding of the legal system that will facilitate professional practise. To achieve this, graduates must acquire the practical, disciplinary, applied and professional know-how that constitutes most of the subjects that comprise the Syllabus and therefore, the Law Graduate must attain objectives such as becoming aware of the importance of Law as the system that regulates social relations, acquire an integral view of the legal system and an inter-disciplinary perspective in the resolution of the different aspects of legal problems and understand and know the different forms of creating Law. Graduates must also know and understand the fundamental public and private legal institution and also interpret and apply the basic principles of the legal system. Apart from these objectives, Law Graduates must be able to analyse and synthesise and be able to communicate both orally and in writing, in Spanish and English. They must show an ability to resolve legal problems by creating and defending arguments within each disciplinary field and show sensitivity towards issues of a social, economic and environmental nature. All this must be accompanied by the ability to learn autonomously and constantly to keep abreast of social and legislative changes.
