Degree in Law


Structured over four years, students are equipped to understand society in all its complexity, regulate community relations, and by applying current legislation, resolve the conflicts that arise within a community through logical, rational and structural thinking.


The academic programme emphasises practical work. From the first year, students are involved in resolving practical cases and undertake internships in courts and law firms. The degree includes the disciplines which make up the legal system and provides the skills for handling documentation and legal databases online.


The teaching staff consists of lawyers, magistrates and attorneys. Thanks to their professional careers they can provide students with the benefits of their experience, while maintaining their knowledge and skills permanently updated through continuous teacher training courses.


Law degree students have the use of laboratories, workshops and computer resources. In particular, they can use the Aula Aranzadi, a classroom with 25 computer workstations, online databases and the bibliographical holdings of the publishers Editorial Aranzadi, with monographs, journals, case-law, etc, and where practical classes are given for all substantive law subjects.

What makes UAX different

Students acquire very valuable professional experience through the Practicum, in the form of internships in legal offices and bodies. UAX is the only private university in Spain with its own Practicum in the Supreme Court. Students also visit institutions such as Congress or the Supreme Court and take part in trips to European Union institutions.

Employment Opportunities

There are many career openings for Law graduates: court lawyer, legal consultant and analyst in the civil, trade and labour sphere in companies of all kinds, and management positions in State, legal and government bodies and in European Union institutions.
