Law degree


Program Description

This degree was developed based on an alignment between the teaching of Law and the needs of the market, thus ensuring the maximization of professional opportunities. It is essentially from this balance that an immersion in management is included in the degree that prepares any student for the interconnection between Law and the business area.

Additionally, the degree offers a differentiating faculty that is characterized by a complement between a deeper and more classic view of the Law and a more innovative and daring view with a global approach.

Throughout the course, students will also have access to a more practical Law that is concretized in vocational experiences in a real context, seminars on emerging themes in the area and in the bet on crucial soft skills for a Law professional: communication skills, negotiation and argumentation and legal English.
