Program description

Bachelor Law Studies

The Law Studies is a manager of economically important Legal interests, in a non-litigious manner, and their trademark is knowing how to settle.

The main objective of the ISCAL Law Studies Bachelor degree consists in qualifying professionals at a higher education level to solve problems, issues and proceedings of a legal nature with respect to companies, families and citizens without resorting to more expensive means which take longer in settling. In this regard, an ISCAL qualified solicitor does not only know the Law, but is also qualified in the fields of finance and business, accounting and mastery of languages for legal purposes (English and Castilian), and they also apply this knowledge, still in a pedagogical context, through the Simulation Project Applied to Solicitor, the objective of which consists in experiencing the profession and being prepared for professional practice.

The ISCAL Solicitor Bachelor degree is unique, in Public Higher Education, in the Lisbon area, the largest national legal market, where this offering is not otherwise available.
