The five-year “Magistrale” degree in Law has a common initial three years for all students that provides the basic tools necessary for a legal operator in order to be able to understand the functioning of the economy and of modern society.
The final two-years offer the student three possible pathways: Legal Professions, Global Lawyer, and Double Degree.
Students who opt for the more traditional pathway, entitled “Legal Professionals” will have, upon completion, skills that allow them access to the world of legal professionals (lawyer, magistrate, notary) or access to one of the many work contexts in which there is a need for a legal competency.
Students, instead, who choose the “Global Lawyer” pathway will acquire the skills, necessary to assist businesses in a global context, in the field of European and international legislation relating to company law, contracts, intellectual property, civil and criminal rights and, not least, financial law.


Professional profiles:
Over the past few years, the Law School at LIUC has been at the top of the national charts for Placement: within a few months of graduating all our students are integrated into the labour market, a much higher result than the national average. This is made possible by the combination of two winning elements: the excellent work of the Careers Service at LIUC and the fact that law graduates in our University, after completing their studies, have an economic and linguistic preparation that makes them particularly suitable to work within companies, positions within professional studios that work in the areas of economics and business law. The pathway of study also provides the educational basis for access to specialised schools for legal professions (notaries, advocacy, judiciary).
