Learning Objectives

The Course has international characteristics for both professors and students. It endorses the aims and continues the tradition of the "Séminaire de droit comparé et européen" of the Center for European Legal Studies, founded in 1959 by Germain Bruillard and Enrico Paleari and uninterruptedly operating in the Department of Law of the University under the Convention of March 4, 1966, approved by the University Board of Directors (Consiglio di Amministrazione) with deliberations on January 27, 1966, and April 22, 1966. Since 2012, the Course has been organized, jointly with the Swiss Institute of Comparative Law (Lausanne), by the Center for European Legal Studies in the Department of Law, maintaining the objectives and characteristics of internationality and permanence unchanged.

In particular, and more specifically, the Course, addressing an international context, proposes to explore and analyze the evolution of the European legal culture both in the national sphere and in the framework of the actions undertaken by the European Union and delves into the fundamental issues of the European legal systems and their relations with those of non-European countries.
