Overview and objectives of the PhD course

The PhD programme in Law is articulated in three different addresses: Constitutional Justice and Fundamental Rights - Economic and Public Law - Private Law.
The programme, pursues the primary purpose to allow a post-graduate education at levels of excellence for young researchers who intend to improve their legal education through the acquisitions of the methods of scientific research applied to law.
For this purpose a part of the training activities, carried out jointly by the thru addresses, will focus on topics of general interest open towards all the directions of the contemporary legal culture, following an interdisciplinary approach.
Essential in the education of PhD students is the articulation in addresses, each of which, by virtue of the knowledge guaranteed by the teachers directly involved, by the tradition acquired through an experience, develops and completes autonomously the activities common to the whole course.
The PhD course in Legal Sciences pursues the overall aim to allow an excellent post-graduate education to young scholars who intend to improve their preparation through the acquisition of scientific methods and criterions applied to Law.

The teaching of the curriculum of Private Law consists of lectures, seminars, presentations of books, conferences and discussion meetings and seminars in which the same PhD students discuss their research topics or perform interventions.
The teaching covers the major issues of private law and European private law and emphasizes the analysis of interdisciplinary issues, in coordination and in collaboration with other curricula of the school.

The activities emphasizes the analysis of interdisciplinary issues, in coordination and collaboration with other curricula of the school.
The teaching is divided into cycles of lectures, seminars, organization and participation in conferences, book presentations, individual meetings and collegial discussion on the research activities of PhD students. In carrying out these activities is required the active participation of PhD students, which required the preparation of reports or articulated questions.
Some activities are performed in English.

With specific regard to the curriculum on Constitutional Justice and Fundamental Rights, the main research area is represented by the increasingly important role played by constitutional justice in modern legal systems, both for the protection of individual constitutional rights, and as an instrument of regulation of the dynamics of public authorities, when arbitral services are asked with reference to the operating principles of public authorities or the territorial organization of States.
This curriculum, after twenty years of experience, can take advantage of a very interdisciplinary approach, as it is evidenced by the relationship with the areas of Law Philosophy and Jurisprudence, with balanced attention to both substantive and procedural issues, also with a transversal dimension with regard to other disciplines, such as tax law and tax procedural law. All contents are always examined with the awareness of the importance of supranational dimensions, as evidenced by the presence of international law profiles and the Italian-French-Spanish curriculum of constitutional justice that allows fruitful insights and exchanges of experience with regard to jurisdictions the analysis of which represents a very important enrichment for the deeper knowledge of our system.
