“The Master’s in Social and Innovation Law was a highly relevant course of study for me to pursue. I am a lawyer in close collaboration with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Portuguese Navy. In the past few years, I have dedicated my professional life to an Institution whose principal concern is their citizen’s welfare, the SCML. My choice of this Master’s is due to the subjects offered and to the teaching staff. I have taken part in Erasmus, and several courses at national and European universities, and it is with great pleasure that I return to NOVA School of Law, a Faculty with a multicultural environment and where the jurist and humanist stand side by side.”
“I have a Bachelor degree in Law from Vale do Rio dos Sinos University. I am a lawyer and since 2016, I have been Prosecutor to the Architecture and Urbanism Council from Rio Grande do Sul.
I have chosen the Master in Social and Innovation Law because it is a course where there is a strong connection between theory and practice, and because it focuses on present-day situations. I couldn’t be happier with my decision, especially with regard to the teaching staff and the well-structured curriculum that NOVA School of Law offers.”
