Masters in Law

Education objectives

The Second Cycle has been planned according to the following two objectives: (i) developing the foundational knowledge acquired during the First Cycle, and (ii) allowing specialisation, with a choice of several areas of studies. After completing the Second Cycle, students are competent, rigorous, critical, and innovative enough to enter legal practice. They are able to practise in any legal field, both in traditional legal professions and in those requiring more contextualised legal knowledge. A high quality education is provided in order to assure that students are suitably prepared for the challenges awaiting them. During this Cycle, students will also acquire the skills they need if they are to move comfortably on to more advanced studies.

 

Access conditions

In accessing the Second Cycle, priority is given to graduates who have completed the First Cycle with a total of 240 credits. Overseas students must have completed a degree (8 semesters minimum) in a recognised academic institution.

Provided certain conditions are met the Faculty may admit non-law graduates with relevant academic records and/or professional experience.

Evaluation rules

Evaluation for the taught courses consists of a final written exam at the end of the first two semesters. Other elements can be taken into account as long as students are duly informed of what is going to be considered. Different methods of evaluation may exceptionally be authorised by the Scientific Council. Students may sit exams only once per term. Those who fail may resit exams only at the end of the following term.

At the end of the third semester, a short thesis will be submitted and discussed under the supervision of a Professor. Alternatively, a research project or a final Report from an iternship with an agreed institution can be submitted and discussed.
