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) (note that exceptionally students will be allowed to substitute EU law (9 CPU) with Key Issues in EU law (6 CPU) upon the approval of the LLM Director and the EU law course coordinator;
- four multiple choice compulsory courses: a course (or a combination of courses) from each of the four key areas amounting to at least 6 CPU (Foundations of Law; Business Law; Digital Law and Public and Social Law);
- other elective courses and professional skills seminars so that the sum of CPU of compulsory courses + courses and seminars of the four key areas + other elective courses and professional skills seminars is 54 CPU (or slightly more);
Final work: paper or internship (with report) or legal clinics (with report) (6 CPU).

(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 note that the IT tool does not make an automatic check of compliance with the rules stated in “program requirements” and the “lists of courses with respective course requirements”.
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).
The Program Director will advise you on your personal study plan.
Changes (if any) will have to be entered in the IT tool.
