Ph.D. programmes normally last four years: an academic year corresponding to an advanced training programme (curricular phase) and up to three academic years to prepare the thesis.
The completion of the curricular phase of any of the Ph.D. courses grants the candidate the chance to prepare, advised by a Professor of this Law School, an original thesis on a subject adequate to the domain of studies, as proposed by the candidate and approved by the Scientific Board of the School of Law. A public defence of the thesis is held with a jury appointed by the Director of the School of Law, which includes members from other national and foreign academic institutions. The jury evaluates the thesis and the defence and assigns the Ph.D. researcher the final grade for the Programme.
Normal duration: 4 academic years (8 semesters), one year for the curricular phase and three years to prepare the thesis
Number of credits: 240 ECTS
System: mixed (daytime courses and evening courses)
