Main focus

; Graduates of this master’s programme will have an in-depth knowledge of the principles, protection mechanisms and legal regime of national, supranational, and international rights. More concretely, they will have mastered the jurisprudence relevant to the application and guarantee of fundamental rights within national jurisdiction as well as within European and international jurisdictions. They will be able to successfully deal with and resolve specific legal controversies in multidisciplinary contexts regarding issues related to the guarantee of rights that require an interconnection between legislative levels, for example, civil service at the regional, national, European or international levels. In other words, graduates will be capable of writing reports, providing counsel at the request of third parties, and when necessary, defending clients in court. They will also be able to draft proposals for the reform of legislative projects from both a critical and responsible perspective.


Students that have completed the second cycle have the following competencies: – Have demonstrated knowledge and understanding that is founded upon a basis or opportunity for originality in developing and/or applying ideas, often within a research context. – Can apply their acquired knowledge and understanding, and problem solving abilities in new or unfamiliar environments within broader (or multidisciplinary) contexts related to their field of study. – Have the ability to integrate knowledge and handle complexity, and formulate judgments with incomplete or limited information, but that include reflecting on social and ethical responsibilities linked to the application of their knowledge and judgments. – Can communicate their conclusions, and the knowledge and rationale underpinning these, to specialist and non-specialist audiences clearly and unambiguously. – Have the learning skills to allow them to continue to study in a manner that may be largely self-directed or autonomous.
