Law

The Course:

The course comprises two cycles: the basic and the professional. It includes lectures and practical classes, as well as exercises and activities in real-life cases. There are compulsory subjects, such as Constitutional Law, Criminal Law, Civil Law, Labor Law, Administrative Law and Procedural Law. There are also seminars and elective subjects, such as Consumer Relations Law, Children and Adolescents Rights, Environmental Law, Election Law, Criminal Enforcement Law and Competition Law.
Thus, the structure of the course allows a balance between the traditional content and the modern contours and trends of legal sciences. As complementary activities, there are study groups, congresses and seminars, tutoring and professional training programs, as well as research and extension projects. The application of knowledge takes place, notably, in the Legal Practice Center, under the guidance of specialist professors. The students work in extension projects to provide legal services to the community in addition to supervised internships, made possible due to agreements with other institutions related to the practice of law.

Professional prospects:

The Bachelor of Law is able to practice private law and have a career in public legal service. The professional can act as lawyer, judge, prosecutor, attorney, solicitor, D.A. (District Attorney) or police chief, among others.
