Letizia Gianformaggio Chair




The Department has recently established a Chair 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 while remaining in Ferrara.
The Chair is dedicated to Letizia Gianformaggio, who  taught Philosophy of Law at the Department for several years, to commemorate the tenth anniversary of her death.
The fourth Gianformaggio Chair has been endowed to Professor Holger Hestermeyer , of  the King's College and Professor Jean Sylvestre Bergè of the University of Lione - Jean Moulin. They will teach World trade law (II semester) and Operating law in a global context (I semester), respectively.
