1st and 2nd level Professional Master Courses

Corporate lawyer


Director:  Berardino Frontuto

The professional master course (2nd Level) Corporate Lawyer aims to provide the necessary competences to work as a Corporate Lawyer specialised in broad-spectrum consultancy.

The course provides thorough knowledge of the main issues relating to enterprises. The international dimension of business and the increasing need of flexibility require the corporate lawyer to combine the role of manager and lawyer. Starting from the analysis of the intervention areas, the Professional Master course favours the acquisition of a flexible and innovation adaptive approach for the management of corporate issues.

The course is constantly updated with the new legislation, and with the competences and needs required by the job market.



The Professional master course is addressed to all those wishing to acquire theoretical and practical knowledge to operate in the field of corporate law.

In order to be admitted it is necessary to hold a master’s degree. The minimum number of participants is 10.

Students from non-EU countries will have to submit their application form (within the deadline set every year by the MIUR) to the Italian Embassies (or Consulates) of the country they live in.

To complete the enrolment process it will be therefore necessary to submit the declaration of value of qualifications issued by recognised educational institutions, and a certified copy of the diplomas. These documents are issued by the Italian Embassies (or Consulates) of the students’ countries of origin.

Applications received after the deadline, lacking the above-mentioned documents and not sent by official consular communication will not be accepted.

Enrolment “upon condition” is not admitted.

The course is delivered in blended mode:

  • In person and online lessons for each module
  • In person internship with host organisations
  • In person discussion of the final thesis

In person lessons will take place in IUL’s university branch in Potenza.

IUL’s educational offer is flexible and is based on prior experience and knowledge of the students.

In addition to the support provided by the teaching staff, IUL’s educational model envisages the constant assistance of a tutor endowed with transversal competencies.

At the end of each topic, an in person exam must be taken and a final thesis, agreed with a professor of the course, must be discussed. In order to be admitted to the final dissertation it is necessary to have passed all the final tests and exams and to have completed the internship.

The discussion of the thesis will take place in IUL’s branch in Florence, or in Potenza.

The final grade accounts for all the marks obtained in each exam.
