Universidad Panamericana | Faculty of Law Academic Offering Postgraduate Master's Degree in Public Law

Master of Public Law

Our Master in Public Law consists of two compulsory modules or seminars, and seven optional modules or specialisations, from which the candidate has the possibility of choosing two of them, according to their interests or specialisation needs, in order to qualify for the degree.


Its modular structure allows students to choose the route and the annual timetable that best suits their possibilities. In any of the options, the weekly workload and the schedules in which it is distributed, allows our students to continue with the practice of their profession, since our curricular design corresponds to that of a professionalizing Master's Degree, which needs that synergy in the classroom, product of the experience that students and teachers share in the sessions.


The programme aims to train, within the highest academic standards and giving priority to the centrality of the individual, specialists who will be true references either in the independent practice of the profession or in the exercise of public administrative, jurisdictional or judicial functions.


Personalised education and academic excellence are two of our main hallmarks, and to achieve them we need a qualified teaching staff made up of experts in Public Law, distinguished by the presence of Court Ministers, Magistrates, judges and partners of important law firms, who in addition to their invaluable teaching work, contribute with us in the permanent updating of our syllabus.
