Learning Objectives

The course aims to acquire the indispensable elements of the birth and of the development of legal reasoning, through the study of the method of the jurists. At the end of the course the students will have to identify the reasons underlying the legal reasoning and the main criteria of the legal arguments, also seen from a comparative point of view.

Program

The program of the course is divided in two parts. 

The first one aims to guide the students closer to a reasoned and critical vision of law through the perspective of the work of the roman Jurists in their fundamental stages. 

It will last 30 hours.

The second one will instead be dedicated to the motivations underlying the process of identifying the legal Rule, studying, on the one hand, the problem of the fixity  of the law (systems of so called ‘civil law’), and, on the other hand, the flexibility of the legal argument (system of so called ‘common law), through the analysis of judicial decisions.

It will last 30 hours.

Bridging Courses

None.
