Professional Advantages The teaching offered by our faculty aims at producing and delivering to the society, lawyers who do not only know the law, know how to analyze and apply it, but who also have a critical sense of the law, know how to detect its limits and are able to contribute to the edification of a juridical system that is coherent and adapted to the realities of the environment. So we are training people who can be both law practitioners and law thinkers.
