José Luis Llaquet de Entrambasaguas

In 2001 I defended my doctoral thesis in law at the Universitat de Barcelona. Since 2001, I have combined research and teaching of legal subjects in different universities, as a lecturer in private universities and as an associate in public universities. For some time I served as a substitute magistrate at the Barcelona Court of Appeal and for another period I practised as a lawyer.

Between 1994 and 2013 I lived in Barcelona. I worked for 12 years in various parishes; I was a diocesan judge and judicial notary in the Ecclesiastical Tribunal and a teacher of spirituality. In 2005, I decided to temporarily leave the exercise of the priesthood and, in 2011, I asked for the reduction to the lay state, which was granted. In 2013 I joined the newly created Universidad Loyola Andalucía of the Society of Jesus as a lecturer.

My current academic interests cover a broad spectrum of legal, philosophical, religious and social knowledge that includes law, canonical matrimonial law, professional ethics, education, history, theology-divinity, spirituality and the humanities.
