Our Pedagogical Project

The Law Program’s new Political Pedagogical Project was approved in the Faculty Senate’s 63rd Ordinary Session, held on August 5th, 2016, and aimed at ensuring outstanding education through the following characteristics:


  • A full-time course, valuing student’s academic and university interaction as a way to share different political, intellectual, artistic, ethical and cultural points of view;
  • Integration of theory and practice, avoiding the excessively theoretical and abstract nature which is common in legal education, and favoring effective qualification to face challenges brought on by the profession and by the practice of citizenship;
  • Integration of teaching, research and extension activities, which should be valued through accurate curricular credit and financial incentives, through scholarships and an insurance of material conditions;
  • Innovative classes, aimed towards interdisciplinary and critical qualification, related to areas considered relevant by regional and national demands;
  • Innovative teaching methods, which can transform the classroom and transcend it, occupying the entire campus and the city in the form of teaching and learning, research and extension spaces;
  • Valorization of the Bachelor’s final project, which must be accepted in structures other than “dissertation”, encouraging the student to convey research and extension experiences in different ways;
  • Integration of graduate and undergraduate studies, as a way to strengthen and increase scientific discussion in teaching, research and extension practices, inside and out of the classroom;
  • Internship valorization, ensuring that the established model works properly, based on constant dialogue with employers, who should be constant partners in the students’ practical education;
  • Upgrading of teaching-learning evaluation methods, valuing fair evaluation methods that can contribute effectively to learning, integrate theory and practice, associate research, teaching and extension, and carry out interdisciplinarity;
  • Curricular and educational flexibility, through offering required and elective classes, with a possibility of taking classes in other USP Schools, as well as through formal recognition of teaching, research, extension, internships and other complementary activities;


The new PPP will come into effect from 2017 onwards.
