Inaugurated in 1995, the Faculty of Law of the U.Porto is one of the most innovative Portuguese law schools. After all, only here is it possible to acquire undergraduate and postgraduate training in Criminology, an area that, along with Law, defines the faculty's training offer.
The FDUP also stands out in the creation of scientific knowledge in the fields of legal sciences and crime science. The Faculty also provides services to the community under collaboration protocols signed with public and private entities in areas such as criminal mediation.
Since 2004 the Law Faculty has been housed in the renovated building on Rua dos Bragas, formerly occupied by the Engineering Faculty.
