The two-year curriculum in Law and New Technologies covers a wide set of issues concerning current legal dynamics and transformations within the context of the technological revolution. As a program committed to research-based teaching, it relies on the sound experience of the Law Department in this area. The curriculum is inherently interdisciplinary and comparative-based, allowing students to engage in the analysis of complex legal problems. It is marked by a flexible design allowing students to tailor it to their interests and needs.
Core training activities in the first year include introductory courses to law, economy and technology and European and Comparative Data Law. A rich menu of elective courses integrates the most traditional ones (e.g. EU Law, International Law, Legal History, Comparative Legal Systems) to more innovative ones (e.g. Comparative Law of Digital Markets, Economics of Digital Competition and Innovation, Legal Philosophy in a Global Perspective, Bio Law, etc.).
At the beginning of the second year, students may specialize by selecting the Business & Markets curriculum or the Transnational Law & Fundamental Rights curriculum. Students can choose among a wide range of topics covering fundamental issues through activities based on interaction and innovative teaching methods, including legal clinics and moot court competitions. In-class discussions allow insight into contemporary legal developments as they evolve, enabling critical engagement in a manner that is sensitive to disciplinary perspectives.
