Program description

LL.M Law in a European and Global Context

The new Law Ph.D. programme sets out to create a real research community of scholars whose work is monitored and guided by the best international standards in the field.

Focused on law in a global context and with English as the working language, the degree builds on the success of Católica's LL.M. programmes. A selected group of students are recruited each year from among the world’s brightest to join CGSL as PhD students. Doctoral candidates will gain direct access to the prominent international faculty that teaches at CGSL. They will also benefit from an extensive set of exchange agreements and scientific protocols that CGSL has with high-profile law schools and research institutions in the United States, Europe, and Latin America. PhD students are encouraged to spend at least one year abroad as visiting fellows at a partner institution and will be funded accordingly.

Admission requirements

Católica Global School of Law (CGSL) is accepting applications from qualified candidates for the Global PhD Programme in Law. Admitted candidates receive a full tuition waiver and a monthly stipend calculated to cover their living expenses as doctoral students in Lisbon for four years.


Following a public tender among doctoral programs across disciplines, the Global PhD Programme in Law was selected by an international panel of experts for comprehensive funding by the Foundation for Science and Technology (FCT) in Portugal.

Tuition fees

The six admitted candidates will receive a full tuition waiver and a monthly stipend calculated to cover their living expenses as doctoral students in Lisbon for four years, as well as expenses related to research stays abroad (6 FCT mixed PhD fellowships).

There are six scholarships available. The tender is open from March 23 to May 29, 2015. The selection process is expected to be concluded and all applicants informed of the decision at the latest by early July 2015. The next edition of the programme should start on October 2015.
