FGV Sao Paulo Law School launches 4th edition of Esdras Law Teaching Prize
Fundação Getulio Vargas’ Sao Paulo Law School is accepting applications for the fourth edition of the Esdras Borges Costa Law Teaching Prize. These awards were created in 2014 to highlight, promote and facilitate access to educational materials that encourage students to play an active role in the law teaching and learning process and stimulate professors and education institutions to experiment with, disseminate and debate concrete participatory legal education methods.
The awards scheme’s purpose is to contribute to the continuous improvement of legal education in Brazil. It is aimed at professors who teach legal subjects on law courses or other related courses, including undergraduate, graduate and short ones. The awards cover any participatory teaching activity in which students are the main agent in their own learning.
In this fourth edition, the main prize will be R$5,000 (gross). Entries may also receive honorable mentions and be included in the Database of Participatory Law Teaching Materials, which makes participatory law education classroom exercises available to society.
The Esdras Prize’s judging committee will take into account the extent to which students are proactively engaged in the learning process, dialogue with the social context, the originality and creativity involved in the activity, educational planning, interfaces with other subjects, the potential to disseminate and replicate the educational materials, the use of technology to support the learning process, and the degree of innovation, bearing in mind the pandemic, for future applications that are not limited to emergency remote teaching. The deadline for entries is 11:59 pm (Brasília time) on May 30, 2022.
