European Law

An LLM or Master of Laws degree is an academic degree, often sought by students with undergraduate law degrees who are looking to educate themselves more thoroughly in one specific area of law study. LLM programs are research-oriented and typically last for one year.

The skills and concepts one learns from studying law can depend on the country where the studies take place. Unlike some law studies, studying European law can teach a student about legal ideas that spread beyond a single country.

Portugal is one of the warmest European countries. University programs are very affordable. In fact Portugal has one of the lowest living costs for students. Enjoy the the great beaches in Algarve or the old wings of history in the capital city of Lisbon.

All this requires a different type of lawyer from the traditional lawyer trained exclusively in a particular domestic legal system. It requires a truly international legal education, where courses are specifically tailored to meet the challenges of this pluralism of legal sources and jurisdictions.
