Católica Global School of Law was established in 2009 at the Law School of the Catholic University of Portugal and has become the center of the Católica's growing focus on international legal education. Since its founding, Católica Global School of Law has been successful in achieving a series of goals: it has attracted a remarkable group of scholars and classes of graduate students, both coming from prestigious law schools from all over the world; it has launched four state of the art programmes (an LL.M. Law in a European and Global Context, an LL.M. Law in a Digital Economy, an Advanced LL.M. in International Business Law, and a Global Ph.D. in Law); and it is becoming  an important center of graduate teaching and research in law from a global perspective in Lisbon. The quality of its programmes was consistently recognized by the Financial Times for six years, which has selected Católica Global School of Law as one of the most innovative law schools in the world.
