Educational objectives

The Master’s Degree Programme in Tort Law has two specialisations, one in private law of contractual and non-contractual liability, and the other in foundations for the analysis of private law. It is designed to provide support for rigourous research, based on advanced research in European and comparative tort law, in particular in the area of non-contractual civil liability. The programme offers students additional training by basing the teaching methods used on domestic law and on European and comparative private law. In addition, students are trained to analyse the principles of private law, with special emphasis on the different theses proposed by contemporary legal theory.


Access and admission
Admissions requirements

Pre-EHEA or bachelor’s degree holders in law or a closely related field that includes some training in private law and that leads to postgraduate studies. Taking into account the international focus of the programme, places are not specifically reserved for international students (form the EHEA with bachelor’s degrees or degree holders from other foreign systems of education outside the EHEA, without any need for accreditation, provided there is previous verification of a level of training that is equivalent to Spanish bachelor’s degrees and that lead, in the countries where they were awarded, to post graduate studies). In any case, candidates who have university training in law will be given priority.



Career opportunities

The training included in this master’s programme is especially useful for students who wish to pursue international careers, either in professional offices, or institutes or non-governmental organisations. From an academic point of view, training in European and comparative private law is also indispensable for any researcher specialised in private law that needs a critical view and knowledge of the structural differences between systems and models.


Admission to the doctoral programme

The successful completion of this master’s degree provides access to the research period of a doctoral programme. Bear in mind that each programme can set additional requirements and criteria for selection and admission of students, such as the demand for specific complementary training courses.
