In July 2013, the University of Deusto (UD) was designated Jean Monnet Centre of Excellence in European Union Law and International Relations, awarded by the European Commission.
This recognition consolidates the long-standing history of teaching, research and outreach on European and international issues that UD began with the creation of the Institute of European Studies in 1979, the first university centre devoted to European integration studies.

In 1988, the Faculty of Law also became the first centre in Spain to introduce the “Community Law” subject as a compulsory subject in its curricula.
At present, there are many subjects on European and international legal issues taught in the BA in Law and Double Degrees in Law and Business Administration and Law and International Relations.
In recent years, UD’s European and international outreach has expanded significantly, becoming one of its hallmarks.
