Principles and Objectives

UFMG’s Graduate Degree Program in Law is grounded upon research principles, incorporating the most recent institutional developments with respect to scientific cooperation policies, administrative management, and research internationalization in Law, reflecting the University’s leadership, excellence, and openness in three axes:

 (I) Structural foundations

(II) Scientific production by faculty and students alike

(III) Strengthening of exchange programs in Brazil and overseas, strategies for visibility and actions for internationalization and social inclusion

The Program’s scientific mission is grounded on the theoretical framework of “Law and Justice”, according to the premises of interdisciplinarity; innovation; transformation of social realities; promotion of human rights; critical, humanistic, jus-philosophical, international, and comparative thinking, in lockstep with research projects and lines and with the formulation of qualitative contributions to the Law and the scientific community.
