Educational objectives
The main objective of the course is to provide basic training in the
field of Private law. The course aims at teaching appropriate legal
research methods and instruments, with the final objective of giving
students the capacity to apply the acquired knowledge in
resolving legal problems, through the teachings of lawmakers, courts and
legal scholars.
The knowledge of Italian language is required.
Teaching methods
The course is organized in the following way: - face to face lectures
regarding single topics of the teaching program; - practical training
(seminars) concerning some current affairs on the subject.
Students are invited to participate in the lectures bringing an updated
version of the civil code, the Constitution and the most important
relevant legislation. The seminars provide an active involvement of the
students, who will present practical law cases regarding the addressed
matter. Before each seminar the professor will indicate the study material
referring to a recent and significant decision of a law-court that will be
examined by the students during the seminars on the basis of legislation,
judicial precedents and legal literature.
Other information
The students’ attendance to the course is strongly suggested.
The professor receives students for about an hour after each lecture. The student has to send an e-mail to arrange the date and the time of the reception.
Learning verification modality
The final evaluation will be given through an oral exam of approximately
20 minutes. This final exam consists of 4/5 questions concerning the
whole teaching program and it aims at verifying the level of knowledge,
the learning and communication skills of the single students. Only for
attending students, the global evaluation can be divided in optional
phases: in addition to the final exam, three intermediate evaluation tests
are provided: the first and the second evaluation tests are written. The
evaluation test consists of a presentation, lasting about 15 minutes,
based on the research, study and comment of a judicial decision
regarding one of the central issus of the course. The scope of this second evaluation is to check applying knowledge and understanding, making
autonomous judgements and communication ability of students.
