The Law School of Ribeirão Preto of the University of São Paulo (FDRP/USP) was created in 2007, having welcomed its first class in 2008. We are one of the youngest Schools of the University of São Paulo, and its second Law School, the first outside the State’s capital, São Paulo.


One of the School’s main goals is to become a reference in legal studies throughout Brazil and Latin America, providing students with legal education that can give them the tools and skills they need to tackle legal problems that arise in increasingly complex societies. This is extremely important in a country like Brazil, where social equality and environmental protection needs frequently clash with the needs and implications of a developing economy in a globalized and interdependent world.


In this context, students are encouraged to critically analyze legal and social phenomena in an environment which embraces interdisciplinarity, stimulates both teamwork and independent learning and contributes to the improvement of civic and human awareness.
