Spring School

VdA Academia Spring School is an inclusive training program for law students aimed at developing the behavioral skills (soft skills) most valued by law firms, while at the same time reinforcing the legal skills (hard skills) acquired in universities, and at contributing to the promotion of equal opportunities.

VdA Academia Spring School returns in an online format, adapted to these new times, and this year’s edition will be held on 29, 30 and 31 March

The registration fees will be channelled towards youth employability projects run by the non-profit association TESE – Associação para o Desenvolvimento.


Law students. 

The participants will be able to:

  • Develop the soft skills most valued by law firms, allowing for a smoother integration in the job market
  • Know how a law firm works and contact professionals
  • Increase your network
  • Be selected to perform a summer internship at VdA

The process consists of 3 stages:

  • Application period
  • Review and selection of applications
  • Formalization of registrations and assessment of the students selected

“VdA Academia Spring School has given me an innovative and very up-to-date perception of what a Lawyer’s real day-to-day is and the need to continually improve ourselves in order to achieve success. Because it is indeed a time when we realize the importance of soft skills and how to work with them, leaving our comfort zone.”

Spring School

 “I believe that Spring School is a very enriching experience at a personal and academic level, which helps us to develop the necessary tools to be a successful Lawyer. It allows a practical learning of "soft skills", a privileged contact with several professionals of a great Law Firm (mainly because they are not only Lawyers) and the contact with a new paradigm of the Profession".
