Course-specific learning objectives

The Degree Course in Law was conceived with the specific aim of upgrading and enhancing the connection of legal studies with the world of work, providing students with solid and modern skills in line with the main developments in the European context. Teaching through the casuistic and seminar method contributes to preparing graduates for the professional approach.
The degree course provides a legal preparation aimed, first of all, at the performance of legal professions (lawyer, notary, magistrate) and of legal-administrative functions, also at the highest levels of professional careers in the public administration (legal expert in public bodies), as well as legal-economic functions, characterised by high responsibility and complexity (legal expert in enterprises).
The degree course is also aimed at introducing students to any professional activity, whether self-employed or salaried, for which a thorough knowledge of law is required, including in the non-profit sector. The international approach of the training plan, also through the provision of mobility projects, gives graduates the skills to operate in a foreign context.
Graduates also acquire the necessary skills to profitably conduct post-graduate training courses aimed at pursuing these professions.
The course remains structured in such a way as to direct study towards the more technical subjects, without allowing training to be dispersed over heterogeneous paths. The student's particular inclinations towards the deepening of particular fields are, however, enhanced by offering alternatives and examinations of their choice, especially in the fields of law, political science, economics and sociology.
