The programme is designed to promote cross-fertilization between the fields of Legal History and Philosophy of Law, while allowing students to focus on the areas that interest them the most.

Students are encouraged to choose (under the guidance of the programme director) specialised optional courses and a dissertation topic that reflect their interests, under the supervision of a member of School.
