The Master in Law and Management offers the best scientific background and an unparalleled link to professional practice, based on the partnerships established with FLAD and first-tier law firms and companies.
Partner institutions of the Master in Law and Management help coordinators draft and constantly develop the cases that are solved crosswise in all programme courses (of both Law and Management).
Besides, lawyers and managers from these institutions take part as guests in classes taught by FDUL and ISEG Professors to share their experience and practical perspectives of the problems under discussion.
Moreover, some of these institutions offer prizes and traineeships to the best students each year.
FLAD acts as a bridge between Portugal and the United States of America, creating opportunities for the development of the Portuguese and of Portugal through the relationship with the United States.
With a focus on four major areas – Science and Technology, Education, Art and Culture and Transatlantic Relations – FLAD wants to pave the way for Portuguese scientific, academic and artistic potential, strengthen the Portuguese-American community and bring people and institutions closer together between both sides of the Atlantic.
In addition to FLAD, partnerships are being developed directly with law firms and leading companies where these partners collaborate with the coordination team of the Master's degree in formulating case studies which are studied during lectures, in developing specific events, and in the promoting of professional opportunities.
CS Associados was incorporated at the end of 2009. The Firm results from the integration of teams of recognised experience coming from two of the largest Iberian law Firms. CS Associados' priority is to establish a professional relationship of proximity with its Clients, based on the quality of the legal services provided and the direct and permanent involvement of its partners throughout the whole legal counseling process.
CS Associados has defined several principles to guide its lawyers' professional activity, particularly focusing on their relationship with the Firm's Clients. Among those guiding principles are the strict analysis of conflicts of interest, a ratio of associates to partners lower than 3 to 1 and the homogeneity in the quality of the legal advice provided to Clients by partners and associates.
The innovative Master in Law and Management, launched by the Faculty of Law of the University of Lisbon and ISEG - Lisbon School of Economics & Management, meets an ever increasing interdisciplinarity and scientific training of excellence that Cuatrecasas recommends for its lawyers.
The association of Cuatrecasas with these two higher education institutions of reference is a natural one based on the assumption that talent is the greatest asset a law firm can have.
