Law

The primary objective of the single-cycle master’s degree program in Law is to offer a solid interdisciplinary foundation and an excellent methodology aimed at problem solving, on which postgraduate studies and courses can be established. A fundamental aspect of the program is its multidisciplinary nature.

In addition to careers that require applicants to pass a competitive test, the program is designed to train corporate lawyers that are able to work at public and private institutions, companies, and associations, as well as lawyers that are able to work as self-employed professionals at law firms of all sizes, including at international firms.

Presentation

The primary objective of the single-cycle master’s degree program in Law is to offer a solid interdisciplinary foundation and an excellent methodology aimed at problem solving, on which postgraduate studies and courses (master’s degrees, specialization schools, advanced training courses, etc.) can be established. A fundamental aspect of the program is its multidisciplinary nature, which is reflected as much in the fact that the required courses belong to various disciplines (with some courses that are part of the degree programs in Economics and Political Science), as in the different ways of approaching problems that students will face at the end of their studies. A law graduate has to acquire the fundamental ideas that will give access, depending on the case, to the world of work, to postgraduate courses and various competitive and/or professional careers (in accordance with current laws).

The type of teaching in the first seven semesters (three and a half years) is mainly traditional, as for the first phase of the program, and for the acquisition of basic core competencies, this remains the most effective methodology. In this first phase, students acquire almost all of the credits required according to the ministerial tables. During the last three semesters (one and a half years), however, courses are focused on providing students with analysis, interpretation and problem solving techniques, through case methods as well as other means. These techniques can be applied even in the drafting of the final thesis.

The degree program is designed to meet the following educational objectives:

  • Acquisition of knowledge and basic skills: the curriculum provides structured core materials, useful for providing the student with solid historical, legal (national and international) and economic training, as well as mastery of related study and research tools (to be further developed in the final period of studies);
  • Acquisition of knowledge and applied skills: starting from the second semester of the fourth year (the eighth semester), the degree program is divided into eight different profiles (civil law, business law and economics, corporate and tax law, criminal law, administrative law, international law, labor law and social security law, and EU law and regulation), that students can choose from. These profiles ensure more focused study within the legal field chosen by the student (though they always remain strongly interdisciplinary) as well as a program oriented towards problem solving and case method techniques;
  • Acquisition of knowledge and language skills (foreign languages): there is a strong focus on languages, which earn the same amount of credits as other activities. twenty courses in English are offered, one of which is required for each profile. There is also one profile offered entirely in English (EU Law and Regulation). At the end of their studies, graduates will have a thorough mastery of English, and they have the option of studying a second EU language as well. Language courses, taught entirely by native speakers, are taken throughout the program, with intermediate phases of evaluation and a final test that is certified by profile language institutes.

Employment and professional opportunities for graduates

The single-cycle master’s degree course in Law is aimed at giving students a solid preparation and good methodology for approaching problems, so as to facilitate both post-graduate training and entry into the world of work. In addition to careers that require applicants to pass a competitive test (courts, notaries, public administration, etc.), the idea is to shape corporate lawyers that are able to work at public and private institutions, companies, and associations, as well as lawyers that are able to work as self-employed professionals at law firms of all sizes, including at international firms.
