Learning Objectives

Law and Humanities is a field of study that has long been widespread in American law schools, and literally "exploded" in Europe in the last ten years. Starting from the critique of formalism and technicality, Law and Humanities puts at the center of the public discourse the humanistic component of law, observing relationship between law and other forms of human culture, especially in the Art.
The course aims to explore this field of study in its various forms with the aim to providing conceptual tools and cultural sensibilities useful for knowing and practicing law.

Program
