The Faculty of Law at the NOVA (New) University of Lisbon is usually known by its acronym FDUNL, or by the more affectionate ‘Nova – Direito’. It is the youngest and most advanced Portuguese provider of education in law. It was founded in 1996, under the initiative of Professor Diogo Freitas do Amaral, in order to challenge a rather conservative, traditional way of teach ing and learning law in Portugal.
FDUNL opened new disciplines (courses) and carried out a successful PhD seminar programme before the other faculties walked the same path. The professors teach in a more open and informal way, using various audio-visual media and analysing both theoretical issues and relevant case-law. Graduates are capable of carrying out demanding assignments that require national and international legal expertise.
The Faculty of Law interacts closely with the rest of society, providing both expert opinions a nd cooperating in community oriented programmes. Experienced barristers teach some practical matters and non-legal subjects are lectured on by experts in their field. (READ MORE)
