The Master of Law programme is designed to allow students to orient their studies according to their interests and professional ambitions. Students can therefore opt for a “general” Master’s, i.e. without subject area, freely compiling their programme from available Master’s courses, or combine their Master’s degree with one or two subject areas focusing on one or other of the following fields: Business Law, Labour Law and Social Security, Public Law, International and Comparative Law, Private and Tax Law of Estates, Litigation Law, Legal Theory.
As part of the Master’s degree, students also have the possibility of preparing for the doctorate by following certain specific courses.
