The University of Lisbon Faculty of Law offers a study abroad opportunity at its Lisbon campus. Lisbon is a beautiful ancient city in the heart of Portugal near the Atlantic Ocean. Students can study at the University of Lisbon for either a semester or a year.
While the law school’s regular classes are taught in Portuguese, the school offers courses that are taught in English. It is possible to apply credits earned in Lisbon toward a University of Louisville JD degree.
Tuition and Expenses
Louisville Law students pay tuition at the University of Louisville and are tuition-free in Lisbon.
Louisville Law students are responsible for their own travel expenses, including health insurance, and their living expenses in Lisbon.
There are good bus and train links throughout Portugal, and good intra-city transport within Lisbon, so students can get by without a vehicle. A public transport pass costs approximately 30 Euros per month.
Private housing is available in the city for 300-600 Euros per month, depending on size and whether utilities are included, and a student can expect to pay approximately 225 Euros per month for food.
Eligibility and Application
Any Louisville Law student in good standing is eligible to participate in the exchange program.
In order to apply, contact Professor Sweeny. If you are interested in going to the University of Lisbon for a semester or a year, please plan ahead. You will need to apply to the Lisbon program by January 31.
The contact person at the University of Lisbon is Ms. Eduarda Camilo.
