Master of Laws in International Transactions

(LL.M. in International Transactions)

The law firm Garrigues, in collaboration with Centro de Estudios Garrigues, Universidad de Nebrija and Fordham University (one of the oldest legal institutions in the U.S.) has designed an LL.M. program specializing in international transactions and business law.

The LL.M. in International Transactions provides experienced lawyers with global, multidisciplinary training and knowledge of the Common Law system and in different business law disciplines.

The ongoing internationalization of business transactions calls for lawyers with multidisciplinary training, a global outlook and specific knowledge of the principles and fundamentals of Common Law.

Against this backdrop, in order to develop their careers, lawyers need to acquire specific skills and knowledge of the international legal situation on the ground, as well as of the legal implications of simultaneously applying laws across several jurisdictions.

The program helps supplement the legal training of reasonably experienced lawyers, in line with the current international business environment. Such specialist training is, in itself, key to future economic and social development.
