The University of Turin, Faculty of Law
The University of Turin, Faculty of Law is the law school of the University of Turin. The law faculty traces its roots to the founding of the University of Turin, and has produced or hosted some of the most outstanding jurists, statesmen and women, and scholars in Italian and European history. Among its distinguished faculty and alumni are leading writers, philosophers and legal scholars.
Today, the Faculty of Law continues the tradition, with particular strengths in the fields of private law, EU law, comparative law and related fields.
