Dean's message

Susana Navas

Our Faculty began its activity on October 20, 1971, shortly after the creation of the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona, today located in the top positions of international rankings. In the academic year 2021-2022 we celebrated 50 years, and we commemorated it with different events. In these five decades of teaching and research activity, thousands of lawyers have been trained in our classrooms, and the Faculty has become a center of national and international reference with a large number of events, events, conferences and congresses in which renowned jurists have participated.

Our goal is to continue consolidating excellence in teaching, research and knowledge transfer, thus strengthening our commitment to a public, sustainable and quality University. The dean's team is determined that the School of Law will continue to fulfill its social function in the environment that surrounds us. All this work has been recognized by the Agència de Qualitat Universitària (AQU) of Catalonia with the accreditation of the center that was granted to us in the 2022-2023 academic year.

The educational offer of the Faculty is very broad and ranges from the Degrees in Law, Criminology and Labor Relations, through double Degrees to the 9 official and own Master's Degrees. In all these studies we aim to provide students with a solid intellectual training, skills development and a technical and practical preparation to access the professions related to the degrees we teach. Our learning model is based on continuous work, the transversality of knowledge, the incorporation of new technologies, the transmission of values, the promotion of a critical spirit and the capacity for argumentation. For this reason, three years ago we launched the New Teaching Model, which this year will be implemented in all courses. We have a faculty committed to their teaching work, and a broad collaboration with legal and social operators that allows students to perform curricular practices and have a first work experience during the period of studies. The employment rate of students trained in our Faculty demonstrates the success of this methodology and encourages us to strengthen the network of relationships we maintain with institutions, social agents, corporations and the professional world. Given our international vocation, we also maintain our collaboration with foreign universities, which allows us to offer double degrees with the Universities of Toulouse and Paris, as well as exchange programs.
In this academic year 2023-2024 we will launch the legal clinic, within the Servei d’Estudis i Dictàmens Jurídics (SEDIJ), in which, among other aspects, we will support service learning (APS) through end-of-degree projects and we will initiate a series of events to raise awareness and implement the Sustainable Development Goals (ODS) with special attention to the issue of homelessness.

On this website you will find detailed information on all the studies taught at the Faculty, its organization, the members of the dean's team, the services offered by the center as well as all the general services that you have at your fingertips on the campus of the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. This is therefore a tool at your service, which at the same time should be an instrument of participation and communication through which you can send us your demands and suggestions ( Take advantage of all the resources available to you during the years you will spend in our Faculty, a time -probably unrepeatable- in which you will have the opportunity to dedicate yourself to your training, to enrich yourself intellectually and personally, and to prepare your professional future.

The Dean and the entire deanship team are at your disposal and we wish the faculty, administration and services staff and students a very good academic year 2023-2024.
