Universitat Abat Oliba CEU
The Abat Oliba CEU University has its origin in the University Centre Abat Oliba CEU, created by the San Pablo CEU Foundation in 1973 by means of and adscription agreement with the Barcelona University. It started classes in its first headquarter in the Pearson Avenue in Barcelona in 1974 and, since then, has trained more than 8,500 university graduates. In 1993, it moved to the Bellesguard Campus, and as Teaching Centre of Superior Studies Abat Oliba CEU, started teaching all of its degrees in Law and Business Management, as well as the first stage of the Economics degree. Ten years later, the new Abat Oliba CEU University is recognised by Law 20/2003, 4th of July, of the Catalan Parliament, creating two centres in Barcelona: the Social Sciences Faculty and the Engineering Technical College.
Masters Law (Official Degree)
Law 34/2006, of 30 October, regulating access to the lawyer and solicitor professions, introduced the demand for additional professional training beyond that of university level prior to admission to the bar.
This additional training must consist of an entry (bar) exam after earning 60 ECTS credits through courses accredited by the Ministry of Justice and 30 ECTS credits from a tutored internship.
In response to this new regulatory framework for teaching law and preparing to practice as a lawyer, Abat Oliba CEU University offers this legally required additional training in the form of a master’s. It is a professional pathway that offers not only subjects directly related to legal practice, but also important subjects with transferable skills, such as ethics, negotiation and promotion of equality and human rights.
All students on the Master’s have personal access to Legal Quiz by the Lefebvre publishing house, a database with more than 1,500 questions similar to those asked on the bar exam. Furthermore, it gives access to two digital books: Memento: Acceso a la Abogacía and Memento: Ejercicio Profesional de la Abogacía.
