Double Degrees

Católica LL.M. students have now the opportunity to extend their studies earning a second LL.M. degree in one of the following prestigious partner Universities.

WHY A DOUBLE DEGREE

The Double Degrees allow students to benefit from the resources of two innovative law schools.

After completing the broadband curricular phase of the LL.M. at CGSL, students will have the opportunity to specialize in a particular branch of Global Law, by attending courses and taking advantage of the library resources at a partner University, allowing them to produce a piece of cutting edge global legal scholarship.

To apply for a Double Degree, students should apply to one of our LL.M. programs and then select the Double Degree they would like to follow.
