CIEE Madrid Legal Studies
Established in 1989, the Universidad Carlos III de Madrid is one of Europe’s preeminent public universities and Spain’‘s first and only public university to have adopted a U.S.-style academic calendar. It has one of the highest percentages (42%) of full-time and tenured women faculty in Spain. The University admits nearly 4,000 students at the Getafe campus, located in the southern metropolitan area. CIEE students take classes in three schools: humanities, social sciences, and engineering. Easily accessible by public transportation, the Getafe campus is approximately 30 minutes by bus and 15 minutes by train from the Atocha train station.
If you have a keen interest in exploring human rights and public policy issues related to gender, minorities, and other social issues in Spain and the European Union—and a strong desire to attend law school in the future—consider the CIEE Legal Studies program in Madrid. The only program taught in Spanish in the Spanish-speaking world for U.S. students, you’ll immerse yourself even further in Spanish culture by studying alongside local students and by living with legal practitioners or scholars.
