    WHY STUDY THIS PHD PROGRAMME?

    The programme focuses on

    Research into economic law, without maintaining the traditional academic distinction that sets public law apart from private law.

    Economic Analysis of Law.

    It provides an understanding of the relationship between economics and law, the law of economics and legal economics, and the methodological structure of legal research on economic and business relations.

    It opens up and promotes

    The possibility of addressing issues and adopting approaches that are not merely economy-based, but rather emphasise the social dimension and implications of the economic and/or business issues under study.
