Why Study Law in Catholic Porto?

The law degree course offers broadband training and allows students to choose from several professional careers.

At the same time, the creation of distinct options at the end of the course guides the student to various specialized branches of legal science. The course motivates the student to learn, to think well, creating true legal minds and not just technical interpreters limited to a rigid knowledge of the law.

The objective of the Faculty of Law of Católica Porto is, in fact, to combine fundamental theory with a practical application of the law.
