Miami Law now offers an exchange agreement with the Universidade de São Paulo Law School (USP) in São Paulo, Brazil. This exchange enables two Miami Law students the opportunity to complete a full semester of courses at the University of São Paulo, which is one of the leading educational institutions in South America. All courses are taught in Portuguese.
This public university is one of the largest institutions of higher education in Latin America with approximately 90,000 enrolled students across eleven campuses, four of them in São Paulo.
As one of the country's most prestigious institutions, it is estimated that more than 25% of the articles published by Brazilian researchers in high quality conferences and journals are produced at the University of São Paulo.
Multicultural São Paulo is the second largest urban area in the Americas and an important South American economic and cultural center that includes a modern subway system, shopping malls, beautiful parks, nightlife, and several open-air fruit and flower markets. Often compared to New York City because of its cosmopolitan feel, distinct ethnic neighborhoods, and excellent cultural venues, the city offers South America's best and most diverse cultural entertainment including theater, cinema, museums, concerts, Carnival samba schools, and soccer teams.
Miami students will pay their regular tuition to UM, and pay nothing to USP. Students need to find housing off-campus.
Miami Law selects the two most qualified students to propose to USP each academic year. USP makes the final decision on admission. To apply, please send:
We need to receive this information by April 1st for fall semester, and by October 1st for spring semester. Please send application to Sandy Abraham, Executive Liaison, firstname.lastname@example.org.
