We at ISDE, whose pioneering commitment to the integration of students in law firms inspired the creation of the new Masters in Admission to the Practice of Law, believe that although the programme provides the practical training essential for the practice of the profession, there are two aspects that it does not fully cover : specialisation and training for the practice of international law. Our proven experience in the field prompted us to consider the introduction of a programme that would complete the Masters in Admission to the Practice of Law, which we provide in conjunction with the prestigious Carlos III University of Madrid. The formula for achieving this goal for an institution of the calibre of ISDE is as simple as it is essential: the Masters in Admission to the Practice of Law is now provided together with the best private Masters degrees, given that the specialist programmes that ISDE has been offering for years have earned it a place in the most important Spanish and international rankings.The result is a masters that is unique in the sector, and which has the added benefit of a second practical training stage during which the student will become a real member of the “ecosystem” of a law firm, not a mere observer. The combination of two highly prestigious Masters programmes, together with the specialisation and international experience that leading law firms require today will give graduates a competitive advantage when seeking employment in the legal market.
