“As a recent undergraduate and a young lawyer seeking continuing education in a prestigious institution and international career opportunities in the technology industry, I find the Master in Law and Technology offered by NOVA School of Law to be one of the best options for those interested in the legal and regulatory issues arising from emerging and disruptive technologies. The classes, seminars, and discussions will reinforce your interest in the interaction between law and technology and provide you with excellent professional training and academic qualification to make a difference in the Economy 4.0.”
“I always had a very big interest in innovation and disruptive technologies and the legal challenges that they pose. Because of this, I decided to follow my studies in this area, but there was a vacuum in this field in Portugal. Fortunately, this need was met with the creation of this Master’s. On its first run, the program was a risk, but one that paid off! Any young lawyer with interests in these topics will find a wide variety of courses that can provide them with the critical skills and knowledge demanded for a multidisciplinary approach to the legal challenges of tomorrow!”
“This is the obvious choice for those who, like me, have ambitions in the area of Disruptive and Innovation Law. It’s a program of excellence that bridges the gap between academia and the market, and involves professionals who deal closely with the real challenges imposed by technology on the citizen. It focuses on the most typical and emergent dilemas faced globally. Combining a challenging curriculum with an enriching human experience, NOVA puts itself (and us) at the forefront of the future of law.”
