In the fall of 2014 a group of ambitious people, with strong international experiences around the world joined together with the wish to provide other students and young lawyers an experience like the ones they had. As a result of their shared vision, the previous editions of the Oporto Summer School on Law & Business were a tremendous success bringing together more than 120 participants from all over the world.

The VI edition of the Porto Summer Law School brings you the same old topic but always in the newest perspective of Law & Business.

In one of the most beautiful cities in Portugal, be ready to fall in love with the city and to have the inevitable urge to come back.

Full of history and tradition, the city of Oporto is the perfect place to spend the summer and meet people from different cultures. Furthermore we are proud to have the support of the Catholic University of Portugal, with national and international prestige and recognition both in the areas of Business and Law, and we are privileged to count with the presence of some of the most relevant names in each field.

We offer you 10 days of Law School filled with the most amazing lectures and the most fun and inventive social programme.
