The study plan of the LLM ESBL is highly flexible and you can personalize it in order to meet your specific study interests.
You will attend courses together with students of the 5-year program in Law as well as other 3-year (BSc) and 2-year (MSc) Bocconi programs.
Here below you will find the guidelines to personalize your study plan.
1. Program requirements
Students are required to gain a total of 60 CPU (credit point units).
A limited surplus is allowed depending on the weight in CPU of the chosen courses.
The study plan structure is as follows:
- two compulsory courses (9 CPUs each): EU law (1st semester) and International law (2nd semester)
- four multiple choice compulsory courses: one course in each of the four key areas (Digital Law; Historical and Philosophical Foundations; Public and Social Law; Business Law); such four courses have to be chosen, respectively, from lists n. 1, 2, 3 and 4 (See 2. Lists of courses with respective course requirements). Courses range from 6 to 9 CPU;
- a variable number of electives: seminars and courses (different from those already selected as multiple choice compulsory) to be chosen from the “overall” list (n.5, see 2. Lists of courses with respective course requirements) so that the sum of CPU of compulsory courses + multiple choice compulsory courses + electives is 54 CPU (or slightly more). Seminars range from 1 to 2 CPU, while courses from 6 to 9 CPU:
- final work: paper or internship (with report) (6 CPUs).

(Multi-class group courses are courses “replicated” at different hours / days; you can choose the class group that fits at best with your overall schedule).

Please make sure that you select courses in accordance with the requirements.
During the same period, you will be asked, via an ad hoc procedure, to arrange for a Skype or phone call with the Program Director (or her delegate).
