About me

Please note: Dr Picinali is on leave during Michaelmas term 2017 and Lent term 2018.

I earned a Degree in Legal Sciences and a Specialized Degree in Law at the Università degli Studi di Milano. Afterward, I studied at the Yale Law School and at the Università degli Studi di Trento, where I earned an LL.M. and a Ph.D. in law, respectively. During these formative years I was an exchange student at the UC Berkeley School of Law and a visiting researcher at the UC Hastings College of the Law, at the Cardozo School of Law, and at Penn Law. Just prior to becoming an Assistant Professor, I was a visiting fellow at the LSE Department of Law and a LSE Fellow. I have been admitted to the Italian Bar.

Research interests

I am a scholar of evidence law and criminal law. My main interest is in the philosophy underlying these two areas of law. My research involves insights into epistemology, inductive logic, statistics, moral philosophy, and philosophy of mind.
