Teaching Methodology

DIREITO SP is primarily concerned with developing an innovative legal educational methodology. Therefore, beyond the debate about the theoretical framework of law, or the contents taught, it also prioritizes discussions on the teaching techniques. The idea is to expand the repertoire of techniques that can be used in legal education, by introducing, for instance, the studies, the study of problems, simulations and games, replacing a pedagogic model solely supported by lectures and seminars.

For this purpose, over the past year, professional training seminars were offered to prepare our professors on these new methodologies. These were performed with the support of foreign professors. Drawing on the experience of the Center for the Development of Education and Learning — CEDEA and the Center of Teaching Resources — NRD —, DIREITO SP has been promoting professor training programs. Traditional courses and workshops have been responsible for training a large number of undergraduate and graduate professors.
