Learning Achievements (Dublin Descriptors)

Knowledge and understanding:

At the end of the course, students must have acquired the knowledge and understanding of the national legal rules governing the conduct of business, both with regard to the individual and corporate undertaking, and the legal functioning of the markets, also with reference to the impacts on the policies of law and the economic policies of such regulations.


The acquisition of the aforementioned requirements will be verified through the following methods: intermediate tests and final exams of the individual courses;

Applied knowledge and understanding: students must be able to apply appropriately and flexibly the acquired knowledge in order to interpret and apply the rules on the conduct of the business activity of the national legal system , with appropriate references to EU and international law, together with the ability to understand the functioning of the markets and the behavior of the agents involved, and to make connection between the legal system of rules and the functioning of economic systems.

They will also have to acquire, including through databases, the ability to find and use the sources of law and jurisprudence, and the basic capacity to draft legal documents in negotiating, out-of-court and judicial contexts.

Acquisition of these requirements can take place through intermediate exercises and tests and final exams of the individual courses.

- Making judgments: Students must have the ability to link the knowledge acquired during the course into integrated and unitary schemes and to deal with complex problems independently and with their own judgment skills. In particular, such autonomy of judgment must be expressed through the acquisition of interpretative capacity, case analysis and qualification of the relationship between factualities and legal cases, so that they can be able to identify, represent and solve problems of protection of rights and resolution of inter-individual conflicts and collective ones, even to produce normative, negotiating and process texts that are clear, relevant and effective. The methods of teaching work with which these results will be achieved will be: frontal lessons with possible in-depth seminars.

- Communication skills: Students must acquire a clear and effective communication skills, thanks to a good mastery of the lexicon related to the topics dealt with during the course. In particular, they must acquire capacity to describe and deepen the legal issues in the relationship  both with professionals  as well as with potential customers or stakeholders. They will also have the ability to illustrate the logical and juridical pathways that lead to the solution of theoretical and application problems, as well as the ability to convince and expose the arguments, even in contradiction with other qualified subjects. The methods of teaching through which these results will be achieved will be: frontal lessons, with possible  seminars.

- Learning Skills: Students must have developed good learning skills, enabling them to deepen the knowledge gained during the course by addressing subsequent study paths and acquiring new knowledge and skills through professional and work experience. Particularly, with reference to the course of commercial law, they will have to acquire basic skills and tools for the constant updating of their competencies; ability to understand the complexity of the legal phenomenon; ability to follow the evolution of the right to life autonomously and to deepen it. The methods of teaching work with which these results will be achieved will be primarily in frontal lessons, with possible in-depth seminars.

In the second part of the lesson, the lecturer will present and discuss together with the class a case law (judgment, decree, order) in order to stimulate students' ability to solve concrete cases and to develop their argumentative capacity in legal matters. The teaching material provided by the teacher will be published on the Moodle platform.

• 18-20 / 30 - sufficient level: the candidate achieves, in particular, the learning outcomes provided for in "Knowledge and understanding skills";
• 21-23 / 30 - Fully sufficient: the candidate achieves, in particular, the learning outcomes provided for in "knowledge and understanding skills" and "knowledge and understanding of applied skills";
• 24-26 / 30 - good level: the candidate achieves, in particular, the learning outcomes provided for in "knowledge and understanding skills"; "Applied understanding and understanding" and "autonomy of judgment";
• 27-29 / 30 - very good level: the candidate achieves, in particular, the learning outcomes provided for in "knowledge and understanding skills"; "Knowledge and understanding skills applied"; "Autonomy of judgment" and "communicative abilities";

However, attending students will have the opportunity to choose whether to replace the oral exam with two written tests relating to two different parts of the program (Part I and Part II as above indicated in the section dedicated to the course program). Test on the first part of the program will be an intermediate test and will take place at the end of the first semester). Each written test will consist of a first part comprising 30 multiple choice questions (to be solved in a 30-minute time), concerning the acquisition of fundamentals of each part of the program, and in a second part with 3 short open questions, which will have to be answered in a total  15 minute time.

Multiple Answer Questions will give a 1 point score for each correct answer and zero points for each missed or incorrect answer. By responding to multiple choice questions, students will have to demonstrate knowledge of the institutes and their discipline. Each open question will be awarded a maximum score of 2 points  (1 = sufficient, 2 = good). By answering open questions, student must demonstrate that they have mastered the concepts covered during the course and are able to expose their arguments in a rigorous but synthetic way and in a limited time using an appropriate language and identifying the essential elements for exposing each topic. In the event that the total score of each partial test exceeds 30 points, it is considered a maximum score of 30/30. The final result of the two tests will be the arithmetic mean of the votes in the two partial exams. In addition, students shalll have to pass, in order to show the capacity to solve concrete legal questions and to acquire the final vote, a further oral test, consisting in the presentation of a law case among those presented during the lessons and freely chosen by the student among the materials provided by the teacher. Specifically,  students must demonstrate that their are able to correctly identify and analyze the terms of the question and to adequately argue. A maximum of three points (1 = sufficient, 2 = good, 3 = excellent) will be assigned to this answer, for the arguing and application capabilities, with the limit of a 30/30 maximum total score.
