Learning Objectives

The process of European integration and the globalization of the economy determine the need to expand the knowledge of law and national and international government institutions. The course aims to provide students with the basic knowledge to enable them to deal with the problems of the organization of the state in the European and supranational dimension, in order to a different assessment of internal problems that are increasingly interconnected with European and conventional law. In view of the celebration of the referendum on constitutional reforms, knowledge of foreign experiences can be a useful element of comparison for the expression of a conscious vote.

Program

The first cycle of lessons will focus on legal systems: civil law, common law, socialist law. It will follow the treatment of forms of state with particular reference to the democratic state. The protection of fundamental rights. In the second cycle of lessons, on the basis of the knowledge acquired, it will be possible to deal with the forms of government of European countries, the United States, Latin America, also in order to arrive at classifications useful for the systematic knowledge of the subject. Finally, we will deal with federalism, with particular reference to the legal nature of the European Union. The monographic course focuses on the general principles of Islamic law: "the Muslim community".

Learning Achievements (Dublin Descriptors)

A) Conoscenza e capacità di comprensione (knowledge and understanding)

The student must demonstrate knowledge of the classification criteria developed by the doctrine, in a synchronic and diachronic key. At the end of the training course, the graduate must have acquired the following attitudes in terms of knowledge and understanding

- knowledge of the comparative method and the different contexts of application of the legal comparison;

- knowledge of the main state legal systems and of the problems connected to the different constitutional structures;

- knowledge of the problems and the main instruments of harmonization of law at European and international level and the role played by legal comparison in this field.

These attitudes are developed through educational training activities as well as through thematic seminars, discussion of jurisprudential cases and thematic conferences within the initiatives promoted by the Laboratory of Living Law. The assessment of the mastery of knowledge and skills is made through the final assessment tests and, where appropriate, through intermediate tests and also through case studies.

B) Conoscenza e capacità di comprensione applicata (applying knowledge and understanding)

The student must demonstrate knowledge of the dominant characteristics of individual phenomena, knowing how to interpret and frame them within the legal systems, forms of state and government.

C) Autonomia di giudizio (making judgements)

The student must demonstrate that he or she knows how to evaluate the originality of the institutional innovations, finding the analogy or the difference between them and the classified models. At the end of the training course, the graduate must have acquired the attitudes described below in terms of ability to apply knowledge and understanding:

- the ability to research, understand, interpret and use sources and materials of foreign law in different professional fields and to understand the interaction between national and supranational sources of law;

- the ability to use the comparative method in the interpretation of legal phenomena and in the resolution of related problems;

- the ability to interact with legal practitioners of different legal traditions and to operate in supranational contexts.

These attitudes are achieved through the development of a capacity for the elaboration of legal texts and documents in judicial and extrajudicial contexts, sometimes enhancing, where appropriate, an interdisciplinary approach. 
 

D) Abilità comunicative (communication skills)

The student will have to demonstrate the appropriate use of the expressive language of the catalogued phenomena, in order to allow a fruitful dialogue with the teacher and the other students.

E) Capacità di apprendimento (learning skills)

The student will need to demonstrate that he or she has acquired a set of concepts, principles and classifications that are expendable in further study and working life.
