The Department of Law was created on October 1, 2015 by the merger of the two previous law departments: the Department of National and International Legal Sciences and the Department of Legal Systems.
The Department of Law has always combined research quality and teaching excellence. A point of reference in the development of national and international legal science, thanks to a class of professors active in local, national and European institutions and able to contribute to the definition of policy and legislative directions, the Department offers innovative teaching both in teaching methodology (through, for example, the use of e-learning platforms, competitive seminars, legal clinics) and content. A marked openness to internationalization, a focus on training that is not only theoretical, a vocation for orientation processes, and a constant dialogue with stakeholders enable Law courses to provide the jurist of the third millennium with knowledge and skills capable of responding to the new and diversified needs of the labor market.
The value of the research carried out by the faculty, which is interdisciplinary and open to dialogue between knowledge, is attested by the recognition by the MIUR of “Department of Excellence.” This is an achievement that places the Department’s scientific production among the best in Italy, a consequence of the excellent results achieved in the two previous VQR (Research Quality Assessment) procedures.
In recent years the Department has experienced continuous growth: professors, research fellows, PhD students constitute a scientific community, united by the common goal of offering students a “collaborative education”. At the same time, the aim is to contribute, through research and dissemination activities, to national and international legal-social development, education towards active citizenship and the growth of a culture of legality.
