Master in Tort Law


Why study this master's degree?

Unlike other such programmes offered at some Spanish universities, this Joint Master’s degree in Tort Law is official and approved by Spain's Ministry of Education and Science. Designed to strengthen a rigorous researcher profile, it is based on advanced research in tort law, from European and comparative perspectives, focusing in particular on the area of extra-contractual civil liability. It also deals with the foundations for analysing the principles that coordinate private law, putting special emphasis on the theses proposed by the best contemporary Theory of Law.

The master’s degree has been taught in Spanish, and without interruption, since the 2012-2013 academic year, although some recommended materials are published in English. The flexible structure of the master's degree, based on modules and two specialities, enables students to adapt the programme to their own interests and areas of professional activity. What is more, the development and timing of the contents are especially designed for adaptation to the needs of students aiming to read a Joint Master's degree.

The programme’s teaching staff includes specialists with a long academic track record in this subject, both in theory and in practice. In addition, teaching staff at the University of Girona's Faculty of Law are always ready to help students, who have a full bibliographic collection and library equipped with the latest legal-information technologies. A small university city such as Girona, less than an hour’s drive from Barcelona and the south of France, offers students a whole range of advantages, including the opportunity of having all the educational resources of a University within reach but without having to put up with the overcrowding typical of the big cities. Students also have full leisure, cooking and cultural facilities available to them in the city itself and its outskirts, along with numerous activities to make their stay all the more useful and enjoyable.

The Master's Thesis (TFM), which concludes the master's degree, can be submitted in person or online.
