Executive LLM in Madrid

Northwestern Pritzker School of Law, along with IE Law School, offers a program in an executive format that awards a Master of Law (LLM) and Certificate in Business Administration from the schools, respectively. Administered by two of the world’s leading law schools, the program is business-law focused and covers American common law, its application in international practice, and management essentials.

Program Structure

The program is intended to be flexible for participants from all over the world. Students can continue to work as they complete both classroom and online instruction, and are able to choose between two program formats, depending on their work commitments.
