    The Master in Advanced Public Law Studies offers the development of knowledge and skills for the challenges faced by the future advanced legal researcher: the need to deal with complex problems in a constantly changing internationalized context that creates uncertainty and, consequently, requires solutions inspired by an intense component of specialization but also interdisciplinarity.

    Once obtained the master degree, students can access directly to the PhD program.

    This master also provides the students with voluntary traineeships in prestigious institutions belonging to the public or non-profit sector.
