Learning verification modality
The exam consists of an oral test aimed at verifying the knowledge and understanding of the topics that are the subject of the course, as well as evaluating the ability to exhibit and reasoning. In particular, the student must demonstrate that he is able to interpret a legal text and to identify the rationale of the jurisprudential solution. The duration depends on the progress of the test. Works carried out during the course frequency will contribute to the overall evaluation.
Extended program
The Justinian's Digest has given the jurist of all time a huge gym to exercise legal reasoning skills. Through the analysis of the sources will be identified techniques and logic used by Roman lawyers. In particular, texts will be examined in which the utilitas is explicitly referred to as the justification criterion for overcoming the issues of ius controversum notwithstanding pre-existing general rules.
