DOCTORATE IN LAW UNIVERSIDAD DE MEDELLIN

Resolution 3588 of April 29, 2011 Ministry of National Education

PROGRAM ADDRESSED AT FOREIGNERS AND COLOMBIANS WHO DO NOT LIVE IN MEDELLIN

PRESENTATION

This Doctorate program in Law is a campus-based part-time academic program focused on qualifying Professionals in Law and related fields so they may reach their highest level of training. This program is a direct result of vast research work conducted by Universidad de Medellin's Colciencias Category A1 Law Research Group which has an indexed Colciencias Category A2 journal named Legal Opinion (in Spanish, Opinión Jurídica); hence, the program's main axis is research. This program is a continuation of UdeM's Master's Program in Law, which is currently in its third cohort. With this work we are laying down the foundations for a new School of Thought in which UdeM will offer comprehensive training to transform society as we dream it.
