FGV DIREITO SP - Online Global Law Program

FGV DIREITO SP - Online Global Law Program

Published: 21 July 2020

Application deadline: 22 July 2020

The Global Law Program consists of a set of courses designed to prepare lawyers to work in an international scenario where Brazil has been increasingly present as a global player.

  • It is taught entirely in English by professors of DIREITO SP and visiting professors.
  • It introduces the Brazilian legal system to foreign students, promotes extensive discussions on topics of global relevance from a Brazilian perspective and encourages discussions with a multidisciplinary approach. 
  • It brings together undergraduate students (from the fourth cycle), Master’s students, graduate students taking specialization courses and students from the School of Business Administration of FGV (EAESP), both Brazilians and foreigners.

The courses will be offered in an online format, so students will be able to enjoy part of an international experience. In terms of workload, each course will have either 15 or 30 class hours, equivalent to 1 or 2 credits.  In the end of the semester the students will receive an official transcript, and if they complete at least 10 credits they will also receive the Global Law Program Certificate.

Students may choose the number of courses they would like to attend. To view the list of all the courses that will be offered, including the name of the professors and the time schedule for each course please refer to the PDF provided in the Attached Documents section below.

The classes will start in the beginning of August and will end by early-December.

Exchange places are available.
