International Master in Sports Law, LLM
Real Madrid Graduate School Universidad Europea’s Master in Sports Law, LLM is aimed at law graduates from all around the world who want to develop their professional careers in the field of international sports law. The program offers students a solid knowledge of the organization of sports, their rules and regulations and their dispute resolution mechanisms.
Developed by a committee of experienced legal experts, the program allows students to slowly immerse themselves in the sports world before moving towards a detailed study surrounding sports law.
All our professors and lecturers are involved in international sports law activities, something that allows our students to get a true vision of professional practice as international lawyers, sport arbitrators, football club managers and leaders.
Students will have the opportunity to learn step by step and through practice how to carry out a procedure before FIFA Dispute Resolution Chamber and the subsequent appeal before the Court of Arbitration for Sport. Assisted and advised by international lawyers, they will experience such proceedings and have the chance to defend their cases before a panel composed by real arbitrators in a courtroom.
Our hands-on learning methodology allows students to learn in practice-based environment from day one. Candidates study leading cases on sports law, take part in moot courts, and get involved in forums and discussions with fellow students and professors, creating strong professional links along the way.
The program also offers the chance to visit some of the world’s leading sports organizations and bodies, such as FIFA, UEFA, Court of Arbitration for Sports.
Finally our students will have the chance to complete professional internships in the legal department at Real Madrid C.F (the club offers a limited number of placements) or in international law firms, institutions and international federations, such as Ruiz Huerta y Crespo, Laffer Abogados, Sportia Law, or the International Triathlon Union.
