PUCPR Law School has signed a Double Degree agreement with the University of Connecticut School of Law. Students in the PUCPR Master of Laws and Doctorate in Law Programs (PPGD-PUCPR) will be able, from 2021 on, to participate in an annual selection process that will select up to 7 students to attend one of UCONN Law’s four LL.M Programs – (i) US Legal Studies; (ii) Human Rights & Social Justice; (iii) Energy & Environmental Law; (iv) Insurance Law – with grants of up to 50% discount.
Participants will take part in the credits in courses at PPGD-PUCPR and interest in one of UCONN’s LLM Programs. The master’s thesis or doctoral dissertation will be written in English, under the co-supervision of a faculty member from PPGD-PUCPR and a faculty member from UCONN, and defended before an examining board composed of members of both institutions. In the end, the student will receive two diplomas: one from PUCPR (Master of Laws or Doctorate in Law) and one from UCONN (LL.M degree).
To participate in the program, students must first pass the PPGD-PUCPR master’s or doctoral selection process, whose enrollment takes place between July and September, to start the following year. Once enrolled at PPGD-PUCPR, the student will be able to apply to the selection process to enter the Double Degree program between May and June to start classes at UCONN’s LL.M program in August/September of the same year.
On April 20, 2021, at 4:00 pm, a program launch event will be held with the presence of UCONN professors Peter Lindseth, Carrie Field, and Yan Wong.
