Development of Professional Competences

The Bologna Declaration formalized the principles on which the European Higher Education Area should be based: quality, mobility, diversity, competitiveness and employment growth.

From this, Nebrija is positioned as a reference academic model, by educating students with excellent individual behavior, with interaction with their environment and motivated by and for constant and continuous training. The Nebrija Institute of Professional Competences works day by day to achieve the differentiation of our students through the development of attitudes and aptitudes.

With all this, the University for the Bachelor Degree in Law, puts at his/her disposal two subjects through which the student will acquire the knowledge and legal skills necessary to become a competent professional within the demands of the current labor market.

These are two blocks of 6 ECTS credits each:

  • Seminar on Legal Competences and Skills I:
    The seminar offers an approach to the essential concepts for professional growth. Among its main objectives is to train the participants and provide them with the necessary strategic tools for professional development in the field of Law.
  • Seminar on Legal Competences and Skills II: The second part of the seminar tries to reinforce the skills and competences learned in the previous course, always focused on the legal area. Topics such as the identification of vocation, creativity and innovation, effective communication, negotiation techniques and tools, stress prevention techniques and time quality management, team work, as well as the tools for work optimization, motivation, leadership and performance.

The main objective is that students get the best out of themselves through the development and empowerment of their personal skills and resources, through personal self-knowledge.

In addition, some of the professional skills that are worked on within the two seminars are those related to interpersonal skills and active communication or negotiation skills, essential for our students to know how to convey ideas, argue them, provide information and opinions in an appropriate, clear and convincing way in the area of Law. Other aspects such as team work, conflict resolution and the ability to manage projects are dealt with within what will be their work performance.

For all this we have experts who are currently active in the selection of people, professionals dedicated to personal and professional training.

In this way, and in a complementary way to their specific education, we help students to create a differentiating pattern in the social and business environment in which they will be immersed when they finish their studies.
