Dean's message

Susana Navas

Our Faculty began its activity on 20 October 1971, shortly after the creation of the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Today it is located at the top positions of the international rankings. In the academic year 2021-2022, we celebrated and commemorated 50 years with various initiatives. In these five decades of teaching and research activity, thousands of jurists have studied in our classrooms, and the Faculty has become a centre of national and international reference. Our objective is to continue consolidating the excellence of teaching, research and knowledge transfer to strengthen our commitment to a public, sustainable and quality university. The will of the deanship is that the Faculty of Law continues to perform its social function in the environment that surrounds us.

The academic offering of the Faculty is broad and includes Degrees in Law, Criminology and Labour Relations, dual degrees and its own Master’s degrees. In all these studies, we intend to give students solid intellectual training and 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 development of critical thinking and the ability to argue. That is why two years ago, we set in motion the New Teaching Model, which, this year and the next one, will be implemented in all the years. We have a teaching staff committed to their work and broad collaboration with legal and social operators that allows students to carry out curricular internships and have a first work experience during the study period. The occupancy rate of the student body educated in our Faculty demonstrates the success of this methodology. This success encourages us to strengthen the network of relationships that we keep with institutions, social agents, corporations and the professional world. Due to the international vocation, we also keep collaborations with foreign universities, which allow us to offer dual degrees with the Universities of Toulouse and Paris, as well as exchange programs.

Fortunately, last year we started with all the teaching exclusively face-to-face following the regulations determined by the health authorities (Resolution SLT/2704/2021) and academic authorities (General recommendations UAB). The will of the deanship is to recover the normality of the academic life in our Faculty and to ensure the protection of the university community.

On this website, you will find detailed information on all the studies taught at the Faculty, its organization, the services offered by the centre and all the general services available to you on the campus of the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. This is a tool at your service, which, at the same time, must be an instrument of participation and communication through which you send us your demands and suggestions( Take advantage of all the resources that are available to you during the years that you will spend at our Faculty, a time – probably incomparable – where you will have the opportunity to devote yourself to your education, enrich yourself intellectually and personally and prepare your professional future. 

The Dean and the entire deanship are at your disposal, and we wish the teaching staff, the administration and service staff and the students a good academic year 2022-2023.
