The course aims to provide the necessary and appropriate skills for those who intend to pursue a profession in the legal field.

In particular, it aims at the attainment of analytical and argumentation skills, the acquisition of the techniques of written and oral processing of legal material; as well as specialized learning in the fundamental areas of the various legal systems, so as to ensure that one can operate in a highly competitive manner at the national, European and international level.

Learning by doing

The course includes: 'in-person' and 'distance' conferences; experiences at professional firms, businesses, and public administrations; visits to major national and international institutions; in-depth study with prestigious scholars; opportunities for public display of what has been learned; 'legal clinics'; parliamentary and trial simulations; Moot Court Competitions.

The study of law - and rights - as a window to the world

In an increasingly global world and an increasingly plural society, law emerges as a universal language and tool to ensure civil coexistence and to manage conflicts.

Learning to govern rights and needs, rules and services is essential to be competitive in the world of work, but also to be a conscious part of an extremely complex reality.

In law school you will be provided with a solid cultural foundation to be able to move 360 degrees in the legal universe. 

Jurisprudence as an important opportunity for knowledge and expertise

The course offers the opportunity for extensive preparation in all branches of law, paying attention also to the historical and cultural roots of our legal system.

You will be guaranteed the opportunity to choose from a plurality of specialized teachings, some of them delivered in English in the spirit of 'modernization in tradition,' on which the course is investing much energy and resources in order to enable its graduates to keep up with the times.

The didactic system of the master's degree program in Law is composed of the following scientific-didactic areas and related content:

  • civilistic
  • comparatistics
  • commercial
  • labor
  • constitutionalistic
  • administrative
  • economic-financial
  • communitarian
  • internationalistic
  • penalistic
  • processualistic

Freedom is an ineradicable condition of legality; where there is no freedom there can be no legality. (Piero Calamandrei)
