Learning Achievements (Dublin Descriptors)

Knowledge and understanding. The course aims to introduce the legal phenomenon and its interactions with society, culture, political forces and institutional structures, focusing on the characteristics and principles of Western and, in particular, European law.  It will consider institutes and procedures of both Civil and Common law.

Didactic approach: lectures, analysis of materials (documents from different cultural contexts and from different historical periods), audio-visual materials, seminar meetings with scholars and experts, discussions.

Applying knowledge and understanding. Students will develop the ability to offer a first interpretation of the rules, with a proper understanding of the legal and socio-political content, related to ideals and values.

Making judgmentents. Students will develop interpretative skills and the ability to give personal evaluations on the profiles considered during the course.

Communication skills. Students will develop the ability to express the knowledge acquired with a proper legal language and according to legal logic.

Didactic working methods through which we aim to achieve these objectives: students will be asked to interact with the teacher and colleagues, through questions, participating in discussions, presenting the results of personal research on subjects assigned by the teacher.

Learning skills. Students must have developed good learning skills, which allow them to extend and deepen the knowledge acquired during the course independently.

Didactic working methods through which these objectives are intended: lectures, analysis of documents from different cultural contexts and from different historical periods, audio-visual materials, seminar meetings with scholars and experts, discussions, personal research.
