The Master in Law & Economics is divided into two stages:
First stage : devoted to providing participants with the foundations of Economics and Corporate Finance, and comprehends courses such as “Microeconomics”, “Economic Analysis of Civil and Commercial Law”, “Economic Analysis of Corporate Law” or “Economics of Regulations”. Other courses emphasize areas of law that are particularly important to commercial practice, such as Antitrust Law and Corporate Restructurings.
Second stage : participants are asked to choose between three alternative areas of specialization:
- Tax Law,
- Business Law & Finance,
- Law & Public Policy.
Participants may choose from a wide variety of elective courses that include among many others: “Mergers and Acquisitions”, “Futures, Options and Swaps”, “Poverty and Income Distribution”, “International Tax”, “Intellectual Property”, “Advanced Topics in Law & Economics”, and “Complex Litigation”. Participants have the opportunity to take courses at partner law schools both in the United States and elsewhere.
At the end of the program, each participant is expected to produce a thesis on a legal topic from a Law & Economics perspective. The thesis is developed under the guidance of one or more professors of the Master in Law & Economics and after the completion of a semester long workshop on methodology.
