The LUISS Master in Law (LL.M.) in Food Law is targeted towards providing highly professional qualifications and skills to a plethora of figures, professional and otherwise, looking for an opportunity to gain access to the growing world of Food Law.
For attorneys practicing in, or interested in gaining access to, a firm, national or international, opportunities to focus on food law have been steadily increasing so as to meet growing demands of their clients. An ever-growing number of law firms have begun utilizing and practicing food law in conjunction with the most diverse of legal fields, therefore experiencing an increasing need to offer clients transactional, regulatory, and litigation services. As sourcing and consumer markets spread around the globe, these practices have simultaneously expanded to the international level, gaining central relevance in ever-present topics and issues like health and safety, products liability issues, intellectual property enforcement, insurance matters, and various aspects of food labelling.
This programme also prepares for a legal career within companies operating in the food sector both at the national and international level. The acquired skills would be particularly valuable in Italy, given the notably historical tradition of excellence in every aspect of the food chain.
Graduates of this master will also acquire the skills and expertise to work within the legal departments of the various organizations of the United Nations such as: the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO), World Food Programme (WFP) and International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD).
To help current and future graduates achieve these professional milestones, the LUISS School of Law assures a full-on assistance, ranging from ad hoc training and preparation for job placement activities (CV, Job Interviews, etc.) all the way to the identification of career opportunities and relative counselling.
