The goal of the Integrated Diploma Programme in Law is to provide bilingual universal legal training in Italian law. Graduates are able to participate in all areas of the law at a high level. They are able to familiarize themselves quickly and competently with new and changing legal issues.

This study programme teaches legal and methodological competences in national Italian, European and international law as well as critical skills, language abilities, perfect bilingualism in German and Italian, argumentation skills, and communication and negotiation competences.

The Integrated Diploma Programme in Law offers broad technical training, preparing students for the regulated legal professions of lawyers, judges, notaries, public prosecutors and specialized administration services in Italy as well as for activities requiring legal expertise in business, politics, culture and social affairs.

The requirements for succesful completion of the programme include, in particular, a diploma thesis that serves to demonstrate the student's ability to treat academic topics independently and with proper consideration of content and method.

The primary occupational fields of graduates of the Integrated Diploma Programme in Law include the classic legal professions. To these belong the professions of judge, lawyer, public prosecutor, notary, and high-level legally-related administrative services.

As generalists, the graduates of the programme may pursue numerous other law-related careers, such as in interest groups (chambers, professional associations), in supranational and international organizations (e.g. the European Union, UN, WTO) as well as in commercial areas, politics, culture, and social areas.
