The Single-Cycle Degree in Law
The Single-Cycle Degree in Law is directed, first and foremost, towards the so-called classical legal professions, i.e. Attorney, Magistrate or Notary. Nevertheless, its structure is such that this course is perfectly apt also for those aspiring to achieve a significant knowledge and command of Law, as it is the case with high-level civil servants, diplomacy and with the legal department of firms and enterprises. By the same token, this Single-Cycle Degree allows their pursuers to reach relevant position within the public service, in international organizations, within the banking sector, in real estate, in specialized journalism and the like.
Therefore, this Study Course has the aim to ensure its pupils the achievement of a superior degree in all fields of Law. Such an aim is to be achieved by mastering those cultural and methodological tools enabling to set up and resolve complex issues of law, be they actual or abstract. That is a cornerstone of this teaching; while giving traditional law sectors their due, this course will allow its students to fully familiarize themselves with the techniques and the tools of juridical reasoning and argument.
Furthermore, this study path has been built while bearing in mind the requests and expectations of jurists, who usually, if not daily, will have to contend with extranational juridical systems and regulations. In order to rightfully address such an issue, the significance of International and EU Law is crucial to the whole course, as is the importance of English for Law. Some exam courses are actually held in English.
This is a Single-Cycle Degree in Law lasting five years. Several courses pertaining to the first year have an historical and/or philosophical bent, intending to provide or strengthen the “cultural platform” needed when tackling the Law courses featured during the following years. The last two years feature several subjects to be chosen by the students, some of which may come from other courses as well, provided they are coherent with the rest of the subjects. Such an opportunity intends to allow the students a further focus on those issues and subjects he or she deems particularly important for his or her education and personal interests.
