OVERVIEW

The course of law of navigation concerns the rules applicable to relationships that take place on or are connected to the sea, in a perspective that focuses on its transnational character, analysing the international and EU law, as well as the national law, and the international trade practices. Teaching is essential for students who intend in the future to work in companies active in the maritime sector or to pursue professions related to it.

AIMS AND CONTENT

LEARNING OUTCOMES

At the end of the course, students will acquire the methodological tools and specific skills in the field of law of navigation, specifically in the context of the national and international regulations, as well as in respect of standard contract forms adopted in the practice of international maritime trade, and will be able to understand and analyze current legal issues, as well as to independently apply the notions acquired to practical scenarios.

AIMS AND LEARNING OUTCOMES

The course aims to provide the students with an adequate knowledge and understanding of the main law rules governing maritime navigation. In this perspective, the teaching analyses, first and foremost, the sources, subjects and discipline of the institutes relating to maritime traffics. Particular attention will be given to the regulation of the ports system and of the services and activities performed in ports; and to the contracts in relation to the practice of international maritime trade. Finally, the typical institutes of the maritime sector (collision, salvage, general average and marine insurance) will be analysed.
