Católica Global School of Law was established in 2009 at the Law School of the Catholic University of Portugal and has become the center of the Católica's growing focus on international legal education. Since its founding, Católica Global School of Law has been successful in achieving a series of goals: it has attracted a remarkable group of scholars and classes of graduate students, both coming from prestigious law schools from all over the world; it has launched four state of the art programs (LL.M. Law in a European and Global Context, Advanced LL.M. in International Business Law, LL.M. Law in a Digital Economy and a Global Ph.D. in Law); and it is becoming an important center of graduate teaching and research in law from a global perspective in Lisbon. The quality of the programmes was recognized by the Financial Times, which selected Católica Global School of Law as one of the most innovative law schools in the world for six consecutive years.
