Rio de Janeiro


About the Course: 

The undergraduate course in Law is committed to forming legal leaders that are able to work towards the strengthening of the Brazilian democracy, as well as promoting its growth.


The student graduation is divided into two phases. The initial phase includes the first five terms, when the student attends full-time mandatory disciplines required by the Ministry of Education (MEC) and recommended by the Brazilian Bar Association (OAB). The second phase starts from the sixth term, which is known as the specialization cycle. In this phase, students have the freedom to decide on their own curriculum with electives, studying part time while participating in an internship.

Partnerships and internships

Students benefit from exclusive agreements with public organizations, representative organizations and international institutions, having the opportunity to join an internship in large corporations and Government agencies. Additionally, the students have the opportunity to apply for exchange programs at institutions such as Harvard, Yale, Columbia, NYU, Sorbonne, Coimbra, and others, in more than 20 countries.

National High School Exam (Enem)

In addition to University Entrance Exams, FGV also classifies applicants based on Enem scores, as provided by the National Institute of Educational Research of the Ministry of Education (INEP/MEC).
