The JD-MIEBL enables JD students to graduate within the normal three years, and for the same amount of money, with an LLM in International and European Business Law in addition to the JD. Students spend fall and spring semester of their 2L at Universidad Pontificia Comillas Law School, Madrid, studying various aspects of international and European business law. The program also includes visits to important European legal and political institutions in Luxembourg and Brussels. No prior knowledge of business law is required. All courses, in English, count doubly towards JD and LLM. Full financial aid is available.
In the past, students also have participated in international business law-related Moot Court competitions in Vienna, Hong Kong, and Dublin, Ireland, further developing their oral advocacy skills. Universidad Comillas also assists students with finding part-time clerkships in Spanish law firms that offer valuable practical legal experience.
"The MIEBL has definitely been the highlight of my
education. Partners from large international law firms taught many
courses in the program. Their experience and knowledge made the classes
very practical and interesting. I would highly recommend the JD/MIEBL to
anyone looking for international law experience." - Erich Ekenstam, JD/MIEBL ’13
