Learning Objectives

The course aims to provide the student with the necessary skills to understand the evolution of private law in its historical-legal context.
In particular, after the completion of the course, students should be able to:
1. understand the elements that characterize the function of private law from its origins
2.  understand the social function of the juridical thought and the causes of its origins
3. understand the role of the main institutes of the Roman private law played 
4. grasp the peculiarities of Roman private law with respect to the successive developments
5. acquire the ability to place the various topics in a proper diachronic perspective, by distinguishing the differences and continuities with the current private and private trial in a comparative framework
6. appreciate the reasons of the Roman thought in its respective historical context.
At the end of the course, the student must be able to understand the fundamental legal and social issues that arose during the period of Republican private law, which was the basis of the discipline in effect during these centuries, and even in its historical evolution.
