The course concerns the field of economic criminal law. Economic crime represents a test case for the estate of the leading institutes of the general part of criminal law and the remedies studied by the criminal legislature to combat crime in question have often proved decisive, in the modern criminal law.
The course aims to frame the "economic offense" from the standpoint of criminology and focuses on the general and special parts. The course also intends to emphasize the importance of integration between the different aspects (legal, jurisprudential, doctrinal) of the law (in this case, criminal business) in order to have a full understanding of the criminal policy problems, exegetical and application of the matter.
After completing the course students should be able to report the contents of the program, demonstrating adequate communication skills, using legal language and logical and legal arguments.

The course is divided into a "general part" and a "special part". In the "general part" particular attention will be devoted to the study of political and criminal reasons of the penal discipline, even of the importance of a dialogue between the italian legislator and supranational sources.
The course also includes the study of the legal person liability (Legislative Decree no. 231/2001).
The "special section" of the course will examine corporate crimes, bankruptcy crimes and financial crimes.
