About Legal Studies, PhD - at Bocconi University

The PhD in Legal Studies, offered for the first time in the a.y. 2014-15, includes and complements two autonomous curricula which were previously offered as independent Ph.D. programs:

- The curriculum in International Law and Economics is held in English.

- The curriculum in Business and Social Law ("Diritto dell'impresa") is partly held in Italian and partly in English.

When applying, candidates shall choose one of the two curricula.
After a first semester in common, the PhD  diversifies into the two curricula.

The PhD in Legal Studies  aims at training scholars capable of conducting critical independent research in the disciplines taught in the program, in particular, methodology and the emphasis on the strong connection between law and economics are key features of this PhD.

The Business and Social Law curriculum ("Diritto dell'impresa") aims at deepening the study of business  law with an approach combining interdisciplinary perspective, international orientation and the study of the specific field of the law (corporate and financial markets law; competition law and IP; labour law; criminal law; bankruptcy law) chosen by each student. 

The study of law and economics history and social sciences complements business and legal studies, in a curriculum where methodology and flexibility are part of the program structure and research activities.

The curriculum in International Law and Economics promotes research  and follows the evolution of international business and commerce law, at State, public and private level; it also deals with the economic and geopolitical issues underlying legal disciplines, as a multidisciplinary approach is essential in view of European integration and in connection with the evolution of European and non-European international laws. Students will be provided with the tools allowing them to conduct  independent research in the various sectors of international economic relationships: commercial, monetary, financial, investment-related, etc.
