Acquire the necessary skills to frame every single international legal issue in the right regulatory context (e.g. from policies introduced by the World Trade Organisation (WTO) to the rules contained in the General Agreement for Trade and Tariffs (GATT) and Trade-Related Intellectual Property Rights (TRIPS).
  2. Draft international transactions and file an international lawsuit before the competent Courts (including arbitration).
  3. Interpret the role of the members of the corporate bodies by identifying the duties and rights of all the subjects connected to them (shareholders, statutory auditors, Board of Directors, Supervisory Body).
