“The LL.M. Programme of Católica Global School of Law is a well created, colourful and diverse puzzle. A puzzle, pieced together by internationally recognized experts coming to teach in Lisbon from top universities around the world. The LL.M. is a demanding but truly enriching program. And while working hard, we are accompanied by the absolutely splendid and student-oriented coordination team of the university. We definitely are in good hands!

As several professors confessed to us, they love returning back to Lisbon in order to teach. I think that says it all about the city as well.

I personally have always been aiming at keeping my career as international as possible. This is totally fulfilled! Hence the big competition for the scholarship I thought I’d give it a go, so glad I did!” – Emese Siroki, ELSA Scholar at Católica 2015-2016
