Todos los perfiles profesionales cuentan con más de 3 años de ejercicio profesional activo como abogados ejercientes.
Tal y como está concebido el Máster en Acceso a la Abogacía de la Universidad Nebrija, el profesorado y tutores resultan pieza clave en el éxito del programa. Por ello, se ha cuidado una selección del personal dedicado al programa muy exigente para dotar las plazas docentes del programa, buscando un equilibrio entre académicos y abogados, de modo que en su inmensa mayoría, el profesorado, cuenta con el grado académico de doctor en derecho pero acumula en su experiencia vital una media de más de diez años de ejercicio profesional activo.
Por lo que toca a las materias propias del marco regulatorio profesional y destrezas y habilidades personales, el profesorado designado tiene amplia experiencia docente pero especialmente profesional en el ámbito de las respetivas disciplinas. En las materias relativas a los distintos órdenes jurisdiccionales, la parte de la disciplina más teórica ha sido definida por profesores doctores acreditados y en todo caso, los casos prácticos, clave fundamental del proceso formativo, o bien son seleccionados entre cientos de asuntos reales defendidos en todas las instancias jurisdiccionales, o bien son diseñados por equipos multidiciplinares bajo la supervisión conjunta de un profesor doctor acreditado y un abogado con más de quince años de experiencia profesional como ejerciente.
This information is broken down into:
This information implies that, for the academic profile, the percentage of doctors is 85%:
All professional profiles have over 3 years of active professional experience as practicing lawyers.
Nebrija University's Master's Degree in Legal Practice is conceived so that the teaching staff and tutors are key pieces in the success of the program. For this reason, a selection of the staff dedicated to this very demanding program was chosen in order to fill the teaching positions of the program, seeking a balance between academics and lawyers, so that the vast majority of the teaching staff has the academic degree of PhD in Law, but also accumulates an average of over ten years of active professional practice in their life experience.
Regarding the courses of the professional regulatory framework and personal skills and abilities, the designated faculty has extensive teaching -but especially professional- experience in the field of their respective disciplines. In courses relating to the different jurisdictional orders, the most theoretical part of the course has been defined by accredited PhD professors, and all practical cases, which are a fundamental key to the educational process, are either selected from among hundreds of real cases defended in all judicial bodies, or they are designed by multidisciplinary teams under the joint supervision of an accredited PhD professor and a lawyer with over fifteen years of professional practice.
The admission process consists of the following phases:
The following documentation must be sent by post or courier to the Postgraduate Admissions Section:
Once all the documentation has been received, and it is verified that the submitted degree grants access to a Master's degree, as established in Arts. 15 and 16 of Royal Decree 1393/2007, candidates must take the proficiency test of the chosen program, which is carried out by the Department of University Development.
The test is taken in person in Madrid and in various Spanish cities and, additionally, it can be taken remotely for those applicants residing outside of Spain.
The proficiency test, which intends to analyze the student's capacity to complete the Master's program, assesses the applicant's profile and abilities, so it does not require prior preparation and allows the student to receive more comprehensive and personalized advice on his/her academic and professional options.
The proficiency test consists of three parts. The first is an aptitude test that assesses the maturity of the student, as well as analyzes the reasons that lead him/her to study at this University. The second is a Spanish level test, where appropriate, for those students who cannot prove that they have the required level, in which the Intermediate Level must be reached; and the third phase is a face-to-face or telephone interview with the Coordinator of the Program in which he/she is enrolling, or with the Department Head.
Once the aforementioned proficiency test has been passed, the candidate holds a personal interview with the Coordinator of the Program in which he/she is enrolling or with the Department Head.
2.- After the admission tests, the Admissions Committee analyzes the results and the documentation submitted by the candidate, and approves or rejects the application. The candidate receives written information about his/her admission, about the process of formalizing his/her enrollment in the Program, and about the final documentation to be submitted, duly authenticated.
3.- Formalize registration and enrollment
After registration, the candidate proceeds to formalize his/her enrollment, choosing the courses online and completing the required information. Throughout the process, the candidate is in constant contact with the Department of University Development and with the academic managers of the chosen Program, who will advise him/her on any questions.
The weighting of the different phases are as follows:
- Admission test: 25%
- Interview: 25%
- Academic record of previous studies: 50%
The career opportunities of a program such as the Master's Degree in Legal Practice are determined by regulations, since its primary vocation is to train students to practice law, as its name indicates. However, as a University Master's degree adapted to the European Higher Education Area, it qualifies the student to access the Doctorate, and entails, in any case, an ideal framework for advanced legal training.

The program offers the "LexHow" exam simulation tool to prepare for the entrance exam and the exclusive access "Jurimetría", tool, an instrument of jurisprudential analysis that defines the most suitable procedural strategy for the case's success.
The methodology is eminently practical, as it follows the case method. Continuous evaluation and personalized attention are two of the fundamental characteristics of this Master's degree. It uses the Blackboard learning platform. The professors are active professionals and PhDs, the groups are small, which guarantees the quality of the education received.
This Master's degree completely focused on the preparation for the Ministry of Justice's entrance exams, in order to turn young lawyers into expert professionals in legal practice, developing all the required competences and abilities.
