VISITING PROFESSORS - "Letizia Gianformaggio Chair"

The Department has established a Chair, dedicated to the late Professor of Philosophy of Law, Letizia Gianformaggio, for visiting professors affiliated to foreign Universities, who are invited to teach for one semester at the University of Ferrara.

Experts in different areas of law will thus enrich the Department’s list of courses, giving students the opportunity to get in touch with legal cultures of other countries.

In the academic year 2018/2019, two chairs have been endowed to:

First Semester

Professor Michael Blakeney (Winthrop Professor of Law at the Faculty of Law, University of Western Australia)
