Why study law today?

1. Because law is a basic science, as old as man, that has played an essential role in contributing to the creation and development of present-day society. 

2. Because it is a discipline that not only seeks to explain the what or how of things, but also attempts to discover the logic behind the principal issues and challenges faced by human beings. For this reason, it helps develop abilities and aptitudes that are very useful in life, such as a capacity for analysis and finding solutions to complex problems by applying the law and principles such as justice and equity. It also improves one's capacity for expression and oral and written argumentation, as well as rhetoric and oratory skills.

3. Because it opens the door to a wide variety of professions related to law, such as attorney, prosecutor, judge, notary, registrar and diplomat. 

4. Because, for those who wish to manage in companies and organizations, studying  law provides an excellent foundational education that, together with a graduate degree, prepares students for business management, human resources, marketing, sales, insurance, banking, brokerage, etc.

5. Because the University of Navarra School of Law has agreements with universities in Europe, Asia and the Americas that allow students to travel abroad to get to know other legal systems and complete their professional and personal education. Furthermore, the School offers the possibility of completing internships abroad, summer courses and periods of research at any of the international schools with which it has agreements.
