  • Outline of the Program


The Ph.D in Law and Social Organizations (“Diritti e Istituzioni”), is centered not only on an academic training. It rather aims – by providing a specific and continuous preparation - at creating a solid bridge between the academic world and the professional one. This goal, in fact, reflects the assumption that Law is a social science, and as such, aside from a theoretical training, one should address both its historical and positivistic perspectives, by further entailing quantitative studies such as those found in sociology. Because of this approach, the composition of the scientific board reflects the above interdisciplinary methodology, and gathers both scholars approaching Law from a positivistic and sociological point of view, and scholars devoted to  abstract studies.
Therefore, the Ph.D deals with matters broadly related to Public Law, especially with respect to the interactions between subjective legal rights, and the governance and functioning of national, international, and supranational social and institutional organizations.
These different topics are addressed throughout the course of the program, with a transversal approach, varying according to the scientific areas herein involved, so as to promoting their mutual enhancement. Moreover, the Ph.D deals with the legal issues raised by several matters mentioned in the VII EU framework programme, such as: economic and social sciences, humanities, health, information and communication technologies, transportation, environmental studies, energy, public security. At the same time, the program faces topics included in the National Research Plan of the Italian Government (e.g. governance and homeland security).
At the same time, in light of the goals mentioned before, in order to promote its interdisciplinary and pluralistic methodology, the Ph.D envisages several forms of interaction with the program in “Law, Human Being, and the Market”.
In light of the above, the Ph.D aims at training students capable of using the essential tools for legal researching, as to acquiring a deepened understanding - on the basis of the different curricula - both of abstract and positivistic legal studies, focusing (also in a comparative perspective) on administrative and constitutional law, criminal law and criminal procedure, ecclesiastical law and international law.
The program, of course, needs to be implemented in a complex framework - influenced by the social context and the territorial and multicultural equilibriums - which is becoming increasingly challenging, and includes phenomena such as the European integration, the globalization, and communication technologies, which are constantly influencing the society and the various legal systems. 
In conclusion, the Ph.D gives the appropriate tools both for a fruitful prosecution of postgraduate studies, and for a cutting edge training suitable for starting a legal profession (e.g. lawyers and officials serving in national and supranational public). Nevertheless, it also provides a retraining for those who are already in the job market, both in the public and private sector.   

The Ph.D candidates will have to:
- Acquire a systematic understanding of Public law, in the broader sense delineated above, and master the methodological trends in order to develop critical analytic skills with respect to the researched topics;
- Show the capability of building up a research project for their Ph.D thesis, and be able to follow and implement it;
- Choose an original topic, so as to providing a contribution suitable for national or international publication;
- Communicate with their peers, and with the broader academic community (for this purpose the candidates will participate to specific seminars in order to present their current progresses).
