International business gets new law degree

A NEW degree, which is aimed principally at European and South American lawyers wishing to specialise in international business, is set to start next September.

The Spanish and English language master's degree course in International Business Law (MIBL) is being organised by the Instituto de Empresa and the Bar Association in Madrid.

The one-year course will be taught in Spain in conjunction with the teaching staff of the Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy of Tufts University in Boston.

The Instituto has 53 full time professors and 25 visiting professors from some of the world's most prestigious universities.
