INCOME PROFILE OF THE DEGREE IN LAW + OWN TITLE IN COMMUNITY LAW AND INTERNATIONAL LAW
In order to define the ideal profile of new students who wish to access this degree, we take into account the final educational objectives that we propose to achieve, in three ways:
- Students. We want our students to have intellectual concerns and be willing to work, both personally and as part of a team. In this respect, in the selection process, special attention is paid to the interaction and dialogue capacities of the candidates. It is also important that the student is able to understand that the subjects are not watertight compartments, but are part of a plan or global system of knowledge. Therefore, from the very beginning, we ask our students - especially during the interview and, after admission, during the two-week zero preparation course - to renounce a purely memoristic and "legalistic" concept of law. In this sense, a series of basic skills or abilities are valued, among which the following stand out: comprehensive reading and the ability to interpret texts; writing or writing; and oratory. Likewise, emphasis is placed on the vocation of service and the idea of justice as a reference value of law, both in its theoretical and practical aspects.
- Future professionals. Candidates must have a solid scientific background. It is intended that, by the end of their training, the professional will have mastered the language of law and will have a good understanding of a basic map of concepts (which will allow them to interpret the legal system and solve the practical problems that arise). In this way, they will be able to face and efficiently resolve the challenges they face.
- Training. This will be of an integral nature, which means that it must be dogmatic - theoretical and systematic - but also practical and committed. In this context, dialogue, as a learning tool, and the technique of debate are promoted. This training must be, and is, essential and systematic, so that it can understand, in a clear way, the fundamental concepts.
In short, we configure a teaching model that ensures continuous and eminently practical learning, in order to facilitate access to the labour market and the legal reality of society and to successfully exercise the legal profile.
COMPETENCES OF THE DEGREE IN LAW + OWN TITLE IN COMMUNITY LAW AND INTERNATIONAL LAW
In-depth knowledge of European Union law and the practice of international law - in addition to one's own degree in Law - are currently and in the long term of unquestionable importance in all sectors of the national and international legal system.
The training of future lawyers in our society requires us to be aware of the importance that the different competences in this area have in their learning process. For this reason, at our university we make a notable and recognised effort to achieve this.
Among the important number of competences of the degree in Law and the Community Law Degree + International Law, the following stand out:
- Knowledge of national and European Union law, and of the main public and private institutions, both national and international, in their genesis, historical evolution and current reality. It also develops the knowledge and practice of different research techniques, with which to effectively access new legal knowledge in this area.
- Perception of the unitary character of the legal system, to achieve an interdisciplinary vision of the legal reality, and awareness of the importance of law as a regulatory system of social relations. It is also essential to acquire a critical awareness of the relationship between thinking throughout history and past and present legal processes. The aim is to develop, in this way, the capacity to reflect on the basic foundations of Western thought and on the social realities and currents of thought that affect the historical development of humanity.
- Ability to create and structure regulations, in order to manage legal sources and databases with which to obtain legal information (legal, jurisprudential, doctrinal and bibliographical). It is also important to develop a good capacity to read, analyze, interpret, write and synthesize legal texts and writings, both in Spanish and in the two chosen languages.
- Development of oratory and legal dialectics for adequate expression before an audience. It is fundamental that the student acquires, therefore, a good aptitude for negotiation, conciliation and teamwork, as well as the basic knowledge of legal argumentation. Furthermore, the instrumental command of two modern languages and the development of oral and written communication skills, in the context of the discipline and professional performance and with its specific terminology, is basic for these future jurists.
- Learning values and ethical principles. It is fundamental to achieve an integral vision of the human being, in its transcendent dimension, with founded and rigorous criteria about society and current culture. It is also important to ensure that the student develops the ability to discern the place occupied by man in nature and society, and to reflect on the deep meaning of man's existence.
