Our Law School

The prestige of the PUCP Law School graduates is based on the solid principles they acquire, their interdisciplinary education and their ability to solve legal problems.

Education at PUCP Law School fosters conciliation among people and institutions through the application of Law while always keeping in mind the concepts of justice and equity.

Students learn about the philosophical, historical, logical and legal foundations of each institution of the legal system, thus allowing them to specialize in any area of Law. The School of Law at PUCP further promotes flexibility, tolerance and respect for human dignity, which provides an open forum for the discussion of legal issues.
