More Legal Practice

Students from the Law Department can participate in the Nebrija Legal Clinic

This initiative aims to provide first-rate legal advice and practice to non-profit organizations, covering real legal needs, of social interest and in a totally voluntary and altruistic way.

This legal counseling service is carried out by the students of the Law Department (Bachelor's and Master's Degrees). It allows them to know in depth specific areas of law and put them into practice, always under the coordination of the university clinic managers and the legal management of the lawyers appointed by the firms.

Thanks to this activity, students will be able to increase their visibility in the job market, enhance their personal brand and have access to a network in this area. Also, national meetings are organized, enabling contact with the best law firms and offices. Likewise, they will be able to learn first-hand real and effective legal practice with mentors who have extensive experience.

This generates professional experience, new contacts, up-to-date knowledge, assumption of responsibilities and individual and group challenges.
