NOTE: Any queries or incidents regarding the procedures of the Final Degree Project of the Faculty of Law should be sent to from the institutional email address.

1- General Information

Final Degree Project nature and description

Royal Decree 822/2021, of September the 28th, states that all official degree courses must conclude with the preparation and presentation of a TFG (Final Degree Project) which must form part of the syllabus. It also states that the TFG must be carried out in the final phase of the study plan following the criteria established by each university or centre, and must be defended in a public event.

More specifically, the TFG is defined as an autonomous and individual work that each student has to carry out under the supervision of a tutor (or tutors). The essential aim of these examinations is for students to demonstrate their mastery and application of knowledge, competences and skills that define the Official Degree. At the Faculty of Law it must deal with an aspect related to the qualification studied: Law, Political Science or Criminology.

Final Degree Project Committee

The main task of the Final Degree Project Committee is to manage the whole process related to the TFG and to guarantee the application of the Universitat de València Regulations, as well as to draw up the instructions for the preparation, presentation and assessment of the Final Degree Project for each Degree.

Final Degree Project Modalities

The Final Degree Project may have a practical or professional application aspect or it may be a research project. In the respective instruction for each grade, the characteristics of each modality are explained.
