  • NOVA- School of Law

“Studying Law at NOVA School of Law is learning to change the world. It is accepting the challenge of having an active role that makes a difference in society and those around us. For us, to teach is to train agents of change, active and global, conscientious, and humanistic lawyers. Because in today’s world it is no longer enough to be competent, it is not only necessary to foresee, understand and mediate interests and disputes, but it is crucial to have the ability to think of the best, in an ideal future for its partners, its customers, for the citizens.

At NOVA School of Law, we train who wants more than to be competent, wants to be different, and wishes to make a difference, in Portugal and in the world. Someone who believes that each of us is the potential to promote a fairer society. And someone who does not give up on its responsibility in this task.

This is the commitment of NOVA, which assumes its constant evolution and adaptation, constantly observing the change and the new demands of society, market, and students.”
