Practical training

Experience shows that successful professional practice requires the integration and critical analysis skills to provide innovative solutions to the problems that arise in the professional environment.

Throughout the programme, you will learn through integrated practical analysis (API), tackling the analysis and resolution of complex cases that, based on real situations, affect very different areas of knowledge. The aim is to build global solutions that integrate all the aspects involved.

You will also participate in simulated environments where you will learn to handle situations similar to those you will encounter in professional practice, always accompanied by a faculty made up of leading professionals in their field. Examples of simulated environments include:

  • Teamwork techniques with large companies: While studying a full-time master’s degree, you will take on the role of junior associate in a major law firm or a large company and work on real cases, analysed in a holistic approach that integrates all of the content taught. It combines oral and written communication skills, drafting reports, and handling complex meetings with clients.
  • Mock trials: Our master’s degrees for access to legal practice include work, carried out in teams, on the different procedural phases of a real case, from its presentation by the client, through the claim, answer, pre-trial conference, trial, and oral judgment delivered by the lecturer/judge.
  • 360-degree view of the business world: Cases based on real-life situations are analysed, worked on, and discussed with the guidance of a lecturer/legal professional.
  • Moot courts: Simulated arbitration proceedings consisting of a written and an oral phase. Teams analyse the facts of the case, as well as the legal provisions applicable to it, doctrine, and relevant precedents for the preparation of a claim and counterclaim, respectively. Once the case is published, the teams conduct research and write the briefs. During the oral phase, the teams present their arguments to a panel of experts in a simulated hearing and may be questioned at any time during their presentation by members of the court.

Legal clinic

Centro de Estudios Garrigues is committed to train professionals who will lead the transformation of society, with a focus on diversity awareness and social progress. In this initial stage, the main focus of the legal clinic is on the legal representation and assistance for people with disabilities and individuals at risk of exclusion.

Our main objective is to work with institutions that provide protection for these groups and to make ourselves available to collaborate with them on matters on which they may require legal advice or support.

Some of the defining features of the pedagogical and social role of legal clinics are: (i) learning based on real experience; (ii) acquisition of deep professional skills; (iii) use of active teaching methods; (iv) development within Centro de Estudios Garrigues and under strict supervision; and (v) value-based training with public interest and the common good at its heart.

Partner institutions: ONCE Foundation, CERMI, FEDER, Fundación Derecho y Discapacidad, Fundación Prevent, Fundación Pro Bono España, Plena Inclusión, FAMMA, A LA PAR, Achalay, Spanish Paralympic Committee, Colegio de Registradores de España, etc.

Extended classroom

Centro de Estudios Garrigues values in-person interaction. The classroom is the best place for students and faculty to exchange technical knowledge and professional experience, building a powerful network that will serve them throughout their careers.

Now, technology allows us to create a new concept of in-person interaction, where students can attend classes in-person or, if necessary, from the most convenient location. Either way, the continuity of high-quality academic activity is guaranteed.

In our 100 per cent digitalised classrooms, our faculty act as facilitators of learning with real-time interaction with students through cameras, 360-degree microphones, and smart boards in all classrooms. The latest advances in educational technology allow us to enhance the learning experience and turn our classrooms into real-life scenarios, opening new horizons and opportunities for the job market.

  • Masterclasses, webinars, and online workshops that allow you to train with the best professionals in each field.

All of this is to add more value to your career in the four dimensions of our model: academic excellence, internationalisation, professionalisation, and social ethics.
