The Department of Law continues the long established tradition of the study of law in the city of Modena, a tradition that can be traced back to 1175, when Pillio da Medicina left Bologna and went on to teach law at Modena, thus officially inaugurating the Studium iuris Modena.
The Department of Law aims to incorporate the discipline within the context of vocational training, responding to the needs of an increasingly open and internationalised society. The Department is hosted in a building that has recently been renovated, thanks to which the premises have been equipped with the most up-to-date equipments.
The Department of Law pays special attention to international relations and provides its students with the opportunity to experience the business world through a number of agreements with public agencies, private companies and associations with the purpose of providing work placements.
The Department also aims at post-graduate training in cooperation with the School of Specialisation for the Legal Profession and with the PhD Programme in Law.
