Master of Laws: Choosing the Right Specialization

The Master of Laws (LLM) at IE University is a unique program. It allows students to pick among four different and very relevant specializations. These tracks allow you, as a legal professional, to have the most sought-after skillsets in the global market in the most competitive areas of the sector:

  • International Business Law
  • International Taxation
  • International Dispute Resolution
  • Intellectual Property & Technology Law

Picking the right specialization is no easy choice; this decision will determine many of the classes you will take, the destination of your Legal Immersion Experience, and the postgraduate diploma (PgDip) you will receive along your official and private LLM diplomas. This is why on Thursday, June 20, at 6:00pm (CET time), we will host an online session where the Academic Coordinators and students of each of them will share their vision and experience on each of these alternatives. 

Be sure to join us to hear the most relevant testimony from those leading and teaching these specializations, as well as hearing from those studying them!
