LL.M. in Corporate Law | NYU '20
LL.M. Law in a European and Global Context | 2018/2019

"Studying at Católica Global School of Law has redefined my legal career. As a Portuguese trained lawyer, I was accustomed to solving legal problems using a national, traditional approach. However, the digital economy and dissolution of physical borders have created a demand for lawyers that think globally. For those aspiring to have a differentiated international career or to understand the intricacies of the new “era” of globalization, this type of program is not merely an option, but a requirement. To that end, the LL.M. in a European and Global Context went beyond my expectations. Not only was I able to rediscover my own hometown while making friends from different parts of the world, but I was also able to understand, through them, different legal perspectives and engage in intellectually stimulating conversations and debates that shaped the way I see and practice law. The innovative “Total Law Approach” encouraged by a first-class faculty allows each student to go beyond the materials assigned, play with “what if” questions and redesign legal solutions to today's problems. Also, the learning atmosphere is extremely stimulating. Both students and professors work together to challenge you to go beyond your own preconceptions, biases and segmented view of the legal world. The whole environment revolves around exceeding your own limits and turn yourself into a better legal professional, critical thinker and citizen of the world. I could not recommend this programme enough and I can state, without a doubt, that my professional path would not have been the same without it!"

LL.M. Law in a European and Global Context, 2020/2021

Coming from a legal education that mainly focusses on the domestic jurisdiction, I really loved the broad perspective the Católica LL.M. has shown me. 
Although I was most interested in the European and International legal aspects, I also had the chance to look into business and digital law, allowing me to broaden my horizon and get insights in entirely new fields. I was also quite excited to meet Professors and fellow students from all across the world, discuss the different approaches to law as well as meeting up and enjoying the wonderful city of Lisbon after class.

LL.M. Law in a European and Global Context 2019-2020

The LL.M. program truly teaches law in a European and Global context and provides you with a top-notch international legal education. The courses are tailored around up to date subjects and important issues while combining law with economics, political and social sciences. Apart from that, the University gathers top academics from around the world as well as an international and very diverse body of students.  

One of the unique features that I really appreciate is the Total law approach, which sets the program apart from traditional teaching methods. All classes are conducted in a socratic and dialogical way, where sharing ideas and carrying fruitful debates takes priority.
