Course description

Starting from the 2017-2018 academic year, the Department of Law, Economics and Culture implemented an in-depth review of its Second Cycle Degrees in Law to increase its international vocation and more effectively respond to the needs of the labour market.

Alongside the Legal Stream - preparing legal experts for a traditional career in law (magistrate, notary, lawyer) -, there is also an Economics and Corporate Stream and an International and Language-oriented Stream. 

The Economics and Corporate Stream was designed with our University's Economics Department and offers an inter-disciplinary approach which facilitates our students' admission to positions requiring both legal and economic knowledge (e.g. legal advisor in firms, banks and insurances). Law graduates who have attended this Stream can directly access the second year of the post-graduate course in Economics, law and business finance, and can achieve both degrees (second cycle programme in Law and second cycle programme in Economics, law and business finance) in a total of six years.

The International and Language-oriented Stream prepares students to respond to issues arising from globalisation and cultural pluralism, while allowing them to attend part of the course of studies in France, at Université de Nantes, to receive a Double Degree awarded by University of Insubria/Université de Nantes.

Lessons are held in Italian.

What you need to know

Insubria and the opportunities for you

By choosing to study Law at the University of Insubria you will be surrounded by a welcoming and open environment, designed around our students, where you will be able to:

  • study Swiss Law by choosing the Swiss Law Stream (with six dedicated exams), useful if you expect to work on the border to or in Switzerland;
  • enhance your education in international environments (Erasmus exchanges with a number of European universities, talks by visiting professors, Summer and Winter Schools, study trips);
  • follow dedicated educational activities (conferences, seminars, meetings, reading clubs, initiatives on law and cinema) organised by the various Research Centres in the Department of Law, Economics and Culture;
  • increase your post graduate qualifications by attending one of the many Higher Education Courses offered (refresher courses, post-graduate courses, Masters programmes and PhDs);
  • resort to personalised student support services during and after your degree course, and take part in careers advice and guidance initiatives (meetings focusing on possible careers, meetings with qualified professionals and firms);
  • undertake a placement in court offices and law firms in the local territory or in companies, in the framework of the "learning and working" dual training system: Insubria's Degree Programme in Law has established numerous contacts with the local professional and business world, and attaches great importance to education and training in law and economics, which is clearly in demand in the labour market; it also acknowledges the importance of conflict mediation in all fields of law (civil, criminal, family, community law) as demanded by European directives and recommendations and increasingly implemented in practice.
