Global Law and Transnational Legal Studies degree is innovative and is constituted by a large part of comparative law studies. The discipline of legal comparison will give the students the possibility to deepen the research of different legal models, practices and cultures that outline the scope of global and transnational law.
The Course will provide the students with the necessary tools to operate in a fragmented, complex and innovative legal context.
In the first year the student will obtain a basic knowledge, presented in an innovative global perspective, in all the scientific disciplinary sectors that represent modern legal education.
In the second year, the Course will provide a deeper knowledge of the International (European and global) law through the fundamental tool of comparison. Furthermore, the students will be provided with a precise knowledge of the operation, scope and activities of the main European and International institutions.
Lastly, during the third and last year of the Course, the lectures will focus on the juridical practice and decision-making mechanisms of the European and International jurisdictional bodies. The students will be then brought to dedicate themselves to the deepening of some aspects of the multifaceted and complex global law world, by choosing optional exams. This will also give them the opportunity to choose the research work required to develop the thesis of a three-year degree.
