The transformation of the legal world, brought about by globalization, social changes and technology, requires professionals with new skills to tackle complex problems in different areas of Law. The development of these skills necessarily changes legal education. FGV Sao Paulo Law School is aware of its role as a catalyst for changes in Law teaching through the use of participatory methods, and shares the knowledge accumulated in reflections and research with society by fostering various initiatives for teacher training.
