LAW STUDENTS: A YEAR OUT TO MAKE THE IMPORTANT DECISION
The Association of Global Lawyers (AGL) in Malaga provides would-be international law students with a gap-year foundation course that includes LEVEL 1 of AGL’s English Law Studies (ELS) Course and an introduction to Spanish law for students who have a minimum CEFR B2(+) level (self-assessed) in Spanish (https://www.coe.int/en/web/portfolio/self-assessment-grid).
Students who do not have B2(+) level Spanish, will attend language training classes in Spanish. Instead of the Introduction to Spanish Law classes.
Third language training’ classes in French or German are included and compulsory.
Speech and Drama workshops are included, but are optional
NOTE: Students wishing to take the course are required to have a self/assessed minimum proficiency CEFR level in English of C1-/C1 (https://www.coe.int/en/web/portfolio/self-assessment-grid).
Students found not to have the required level of English, will not be admitted to the Foundation Course. Students who are not considered to have the required CEFR level for the Spanish Law classes will need to join the Spanish language class.
Why take the AGL Foundation Course?
AGL’s Pre-university Foundation Course can be taken during a year-off before returning to attend university back home or to prepare for admission to a full four-year LLB degree course in Spanish law at the University of Malaga taken in combination with the completion of LEVELS 2-5 of the full ELS Course with AGL leading to qualification as a Tier 4 Paralegal (subject to relevant work experience) and preparation for the SQE or F1.
A one-year Foundation Course will help improve your language skills as well as giving you a trampoline into Global Lawyer accreditation with AGL. It will further enable you to regularise paper work for entry to the University of Malaga if you decide to stay on after enjoying a memorable year in one of Europe’s most international and climate-friendly student scenes.
