The Department of Law is deeply committed to its own cultural and scientific enrichment and that of those who wish to make use of it.

Quickly adapted to the Bologna process, with a view to its better insertion in the world of work and in the European space, the Department of Law structured its courses, according to that format and similarly to other national and foreign schools, in three cycles of studies.

The main objective of the Law Degree at the Universidade Autónoma de Lisboa is to provide students with a solid legal education in all areas of law that interfere with the main values of life in society, guided by quality criteria and scientific rigor, which prepare them for the professional exercise of legal activities.

However, the law is increasingly vast, varied and complex and the knowledge acquired in the degree calls for deepening and specialization, especially when facing more demanding professions, due to the responsibilities they involve, the risks they incur, the power they exercise , so the 1st cycle must be completed by a 2nd cycle of studies – the Master.

Fully aware of this need, the Department of Law created a second cycle, with specialized master's courses in four scientific areas (Legal Sciences, Legal-Political Sciences; Legal-Criminal Sciences; Legal-Procedural Sciences). Each course consists of 120 ECTS and takes place over 2 years.

The third cycle, of 180 ECTS, corresponds to the Doctoral Course in Law in three specialties (Legal Sciences; Legal-Political Sciences and Legal-Procedural Sciences). The Doctoral Course lasts for six semesters, the first two being academic, the third for the preparation of the thesis project and the rest for the preparation of the thesis.
