    Thanks to the focus on those specific subjects and to case law analysis, during the course, students shall extend their legal knowledge and their culture as well. They will acquire the ability to understand (and use) foreign legal sources.

    At the end of this Part, students shall have understood the comparative method, shall have achieved a general knowledge of foreign legal systems and of those jurisdictions’ legal arrangements (those which were object of the course). Thanks to the understanding of brain patterns and legal rules very distant from our own, they shall also be able to critically assess the subjects of their studies.
