The University of Lisbon School of Law is distinguished by the quality and recognised merit of the teaching staff, the accuracy and innovation of the curricula, the insistence on a practical approach to learning, the capacity of social, economic and political influence of the professionals who studied here and the cosmopolitan openness, with a particular focus on the Portuguese-speaking world.

Within the bachelor’s degree, we offer continuous and final evaluation methods, daytime and evening courses and specialized subjects of legal science (Urban Planning Law, Environmental Law, Securities Law, Information Society Law, International Trade Law, etc.).

The School of Law also offers specialised and advanced training (an LL.M. in European Legal Practice, career-focused Master’s and a research-focused Master’s, Ph.D. and post-doctoral programmes) in postgraduate programmes in new and interdisciplinary fields, always seeking to maintain a high level of cultural and scientific training.

Every year the School organises conferences on current issues or legal reforms in the process of implementation; it also establishes partnerships with other Portuguese institutions, ensuring the legal education in the Military Academy, in the Instituto Superior Técnico and in the Faculty of Humanities; and invests in the exchange and international cooperation, especially with Brazil, African Portuguese-speaking countries, several European countries, the United States of America, India and China.
