    Knowledge, abilities and skills to be acquired

    The main objective is the excellence training of professionals in the various fields of the juridical sciences who are able to work in Portugal and in the entire Lusophone space. Thus, it is natural that the competencies to be developed in the context of this study cycle respond to this central objective, but also seek to reinforce the employability and entrepreneurship potential of the future graduates, namely given the present dynamics of this sector. The present study cycle in Law has the objective of ensuring a comprehensive teaching that prepares the students for the various juridical careers, stimulating at the same time the individual vocations and developing transversal competencies. While the general competencies within the scope of the juridical sciences regarding the analytical and discursive abilities of the future professional are developed in the context of the various curricular units that integrate the study plan, the creation of optional curricular units intends to stimulate the acquisition of competencies at linguistic level, use of computer tools and support to self-employment and entrepreneurship that are relevant factors in future contexts of personal and professional development. The main general competencies to be developed are: heuristic ability to analyse texts and legislative pieces; ability to interpret and write juridical pieces; ability to articulate knowledge and specific Law information and knowledge of other fields, such as Economics; ability to research and interpret information available in electronic databases; ability to orally present and submit information; argumentative and discursive ability; formal competencies to analyse and generalize information. The objectives defined in terms of training are put into practice through the permanent update and supervision of the teaching and learning processes and their achievement is measured taking into account the school success rates, qualitative assessment of the academic staff by the students, assessment of the professional integration process; demand rate and assessment of the students by the lecturers.
  • Objectives


    The main aim of the law degree is the training of professionals in different fields of legal sciences. Thus, the law degree works, after their adaptation to Bologna, in full coordination with the ongoing 2nd Cycle in law where students are taught subjects in a number of areas of specialization (Legal Sciences, Legal-economic Sciences and Legal ¿political Sciences) that ensure the student full compliance with the requirements for professional practice in the most noble of areas of law such as, for example, advocacy. In addition, the degree aims to ensure the acquisition of transversal skills, essential to professional practice (for example, linguistics) and the education of the human and ethical point of view of individuals who, through their future actions, will generally contribute to the development and richness of the society in which they operate.
