Insper inaugurates its undergraduate program in law with an introductory class
The first class of Insper’s Undergraduate Program in Law started its class sessions in a hybrid format. Students attend the program in person and remotely
On February 22, Insper held the first lecture for its Undergraduate Program in Law inaugural class. Students who passed the entrance examination for the first semester of 2021 attended the opening class session on Introduction to the Study of Law. It was held in a hybrid format, offering the possibility of attendance both in-person and remotely.
Speaking to the new students, the Insper Dean of Undergraduate Programs Guilherme Martins congratulated program coordinator Rafael Bellem for putting together the excellent curriculum. “We have been discussing this program for two years. So the day on which it materializes is very special. We are thrilled for the interest in it and believe the Law program will also bring ideas and improvements to the other Undergraduate Programs”.
The program’s first lecture was held by Caio Farah Rodriguez, Insper Senior Fellow Professor in the field of Law. Prof. Rodriguez was one of those involved in the formulation of the Insper Undergraduate Program in Law’s curriculum. “The joy of seeing the course coming off the paper is unspeakable. We feel much pride and also much responsibility because we need to deliver on what we promised”, says the professor.
In that first meeting, freshers were already invited to study and debate an important case discussed by the Brazilian Supreme Court. For student João Lucas de Gusmão Pereira, it was positive to start the program already being able to take part in an instigating debate with his colleagues and professor. “The first class was awesome! It very much met the expectations I had, which were very high. We debated a lot, and I’m feeling very good about this first experience”.
“For me, it was delightful. I was left with the perception that students had prepared themselves a lot and were concerned with thinking about the issues in the case presented. In the very first class session, we reached a discussion stage that I only expected to arrive at the next meeting. People were excited and enticed”, Prof. Caio celebrated.
Delivery of the Tabletop Tent ID Signs
On this first day of activities, students also received their Tabletop Tent Identification Signs. They are delivered to each student and must be taken to classes throughout the program. Those instruments are present in all Undergraduate and Graduate Programs at our school. They are a symbol of Insper’s interest in promoting an environment of belonging between students and professors. “They have a reason for existing. They are not just about learning classmates’ and professors’ names. They also say a lot about our student-centered teaching style, which enables dialogue,” explained Guilherme Martins.
“I was very excited to start the program, mainly because it has a very innovative proposal compared to other traditional and renowned programs in Brazil. I believe its innovative curriculum will bring many good things to our academic and professional development,” says João Lucas.
