Consequently, alongside a solid preparation in the historical-philosophical, comparative and juridical-economic subjects and in the basic scientific and characterizing sectors of legal science (constitutional law, private law, commercial law, international law, European Union law, administrative laws, criminal law, labor law, procedural law), the course offers multiple opportunities for study in areas such as: fundamental rights; family law; bio-rights; European labor law; Islamic law; corporate budgets; banking law; the relationship between law, science and new technologies; environmental law; the language of law; legal medicine, and so on.
The teaching activity is constantly integrated, also in the framework of agreements with foreign universities, through the organization of seminars, internships, conferences, tutoring activities and guided tours.
The course also aims to give graduates the ability to fluently use, in written and oral form, at least one language of the European Union, in addition to Italian, with particular reference to specific disciplinary lexicons.
Also for this purpose, groups of students are regularly encouraged to take part in national and international process simulation competitions (Moot Courts).
Particular and specific attention is paid to the acquisition of skills, both technical and legal, for communication and information management with IT and telematic tools and methods. It is also possible to carry out periods of training at law firms or institutions, and public and private bodies.
The Master’s degree in “Giurisprudenza” is compulsory for those who intend to carry out the professions of lawyer or notary or to access the roles of the judiciary, the senior public administration or pursue a diplomatic career.
Graduates of “Giurisprudenza” can also carry out professional activities, with reference to functions of high responsibility, in contexts in which the analyst’s ability to evaluate and decide is particularly fruitful, and in the various fields of social activities, socio-economic and political institutions, public administrations, private companies, national and international financial activities, trade unions, information technology law, both international and community comparative law, as well as in international organizations.
