DIREITO SP’s integration into the world arena involves students, professors and researchers and is fostered by the belief that international experience is essential for training lawyers prepared to work in a globalized world.
The School can now be considered one of the most internationalized law schools of Brazil. Our professors and researchers are highly qualified and have international experience. An innovative educational approach increasingly attracts the attention of educational institutions from all continents, resulting in fruitful collaborations for the process of discussion and construction of collective actions.
Through courses and research conducted together, establishing closer relationships with foreign universities has strengthened the role of our School in the global scenario. This internationalization has enabled the inclusion of students and faculty members in the discussions of major global agendas.
The opportunities offered to the students along the course include academic exchange programs with other law schools. Undergraduate students in the fourth or fifth year or in the third semester of specialization have the opportunity to take some courses in a renowned foreign school with equivalency of credits in DIREITO SP.
Such experience is strongly encouraged, since we believe that international experiences are of essence for training lawyers prepared to work in a globalized world. These programs encourage relationships with other legal systems and with a growing set of international standards. This knowledge is essential to any lawyer wishing to work in other countries.
In order to offer academic experiences that measure up its course, DIREITO SP established exchange programs with renowned institutions abroad.
In addition to exchange programs, the School also encourages international experiences in other ways such as in seminars and conferences, as well as faculty exchanges with other law schools. Such measures provide a scenario where law research and teaching should be open to ongoing dialogue with the outside world, thus helping to enrich the academic environment of the school.
