University rank #421 (QS) ,
The Master’s in International and European Law at the Universidade Nova de Lisboa offers students the opportunity to expand on their legal knowledge in an area that is becoming increasingly essential considering the world’s globalization, in which national boundaries are losing importance. 


Operating within an increasingly transnational and globalized world requires legal knowledge that today is focused on classical issues of public international and more on areas that focus on issues related to the internationalization of businesses and private/public transnational legal relationships, as well as human rights, humanitarian law and new developments in international criminal law. European integration is port of the new geopolitical environment. This explain the focus of the master's on several areas of European Union law such as the freedom of movement of people and the European jurisdictional system. 

Goals of the course

Building on the knowledge acquired in the bachelor degree in the fields of international law, this master in International and European Law at the Universidade Nova de Lisboa develops topics of both areas of law, including their multi-layered interaction, namely in the area of the protection of human rights. Development of skills in scientific research. Preparation of students for their professional life.

It is crucial for a lawyer to be familiar with the diverse and increasingly vast areas of International Law and European Union Law, in order to successfully address the theoretical and practical challenges they face.
