The LL.M. in Law and Sustainable Development, entirely taught in English from The University of Milan, aims at educating professionals capable of using their advanced legal knowledge and skills, integrated with an understanding of the underlying socio-economic issues, to further the realization of the SDGs in the activities of public and private organizations.


The Law and Sustainable Development programme from The University of Milan, provides students with an advanced understanding of contemporary legal and socio-economic dynamics, characterised by interdependence, increasing complexity, rapid evolution, and integration between different fields of knowledge, as well as by a pluralist legal landscape, in which the traditional boundaries between levels (international, supranational, and domestic) and sources (public/private) of regulation are blurring.

In this context, students will develop an advanced understanding of the theoretical foundations of sustainability processes and the ethical implications of the choices made in this field by policy-makers and regulators, as well as by economic and social actors.

They will also acquire an in-depth knowledge of the international and European legal framework applicable to the design and implementation of sustainability policies by international and supranational organisations, national and local public authorities, corporations (both in the domestic and transnational dimension), and organisations of the civil society (including NGOs).


The LL.M. aims at shaping a new type of international legal expert able to contribute to the realization of the SDGs, within the public sector (at the local, national, supranational, and international levels), the private sector (business enterprises), the professional services sector (consultancy and legal firms), and within the third sector (non-profit organizations, NGOs, and advanced research institutions).

Students will be educated and trained for the following professional profiles.
