Learning Objectives

The arguments developed in the course are relevant to both the sociological curriculum, and for that social service, taking into account both general problems of law-society relationship, both with reference to the specific analysis of the evolution of family forms. Specifically, the course has as general objective the acquisition of skills in the field of sociology of law, as it stands in the current framework of the critical study of law, and of the main problems that affect its application and functions. In view of achieving this objective, subjects as rules,  action, institutions,  roles, opinions will be addressed, both in a sociological and a juridical science view.

The course also aims to introducestudents to the study of the relations between the family and the law, as they are studied by the sociology of law in the analysis of the legal regulation of family and an evolving socio- economic and changes in life. In this perspective, the analysis will highlight persistence and changes in social phenomena relating to families and legal regulation; the evolution of the socio-demographic phenomena pertaining to the families and changes in the main relevant legal texts to the subject matter will also be addressed. Thus, at the end of the course students will be able to acquire an adequate understanding of the evolution of family relations in recent decades, putting them in relation with the legal regulation.

Learning Achievements (Dublin Descriptors)

It is expected that students will acquire:
1. knowledge and understanding: mastery of basic knowledge about the current structure of the sociological-epistemological legal framework, with particular reference to its constituent elements (problems and methods) in relation with social and legal sciences
The students will attain these basic knowledge: by participating in lessons and through the analytical study of the texts proposed by the teacher and discussed in the classroom.
2. Applying knowledge and understanding: The student will demonstrate an understanding of the concepts and theories provided by the course; developing new insights, both from a theoretical and empirical point of view.
To be achieved through classroom discussions, interacting with the teacher, reading texts.
3. Capacity of judgment: critical reflection on themes, topics, texts presented.
This capability will mature in the interaction in the classroom, with the teacher and with fellow students, in reading essays, articles, scientific papers.
4. Communication skills: the ability to communicate their knowledge in a clear and correct manner
Outcomes to be achieved by discussions in the classroom, interacting actively during lectures, workshops, seminars, asking and answering questions, and also through written contributions. This skill can be developed especially in the second part of the course, devoted to the theme of the current  legal and social change in the areas that relate to families.
5. Learning Skills: methods of analysis of the problems,  independent judgment. Skills to be acquired primarily discussing with other students and with the teacher the themes of the course.
