AIMS AND LEARNING OUTCOMES

Teaching aims (detail)

The teaching aims to:

- introduce to the knowledge of the main institutions of public contract law, retracing its evolution at European and internal level and focusing on the EU-derived principles of competition, equal treatment and transparency;

- compare the different solutions adopted by the legal systems of the Member States of the European Union in the transposition of the directives on public contracts, in order to highlight similarities and differences, as well as identify possible reform hypotheses that can be replicated in the Italian legal system;

- acquire the fundamental notions regarding the procedures for awarding contracts and concessions of public services, also on the basis of the study of European and national jurisprudence that has contributed to shaping this discipline;

- analyze the main open issues and the subject of attempts at reform at European level, in order to understand the various implications underlying the adoption of public procurement policies, in particular as regards the need for simplification, containment of public spending and sustainability;

- examine the different forms of public-private partnership, highlighting their limits and opportunities.

 

Expected learning outcomes

At the end of the course the student shall:

- know and use the technical-legal language correctly;

- demonstrate adequate knowledge of the main institutions of public contract law and related sources, starting from the European directives and the Italian code of public contracts, as well as the main judgments pronounced by the Court of Justice on the matter;

- understand and reconstruct the socio-political reasons that have led to the evolution of the discipline of public contracts at European level and of the objectives pursued by the various cycles of directives that have have been adopted over the last few decades;

- understand the value implications underlying public procurement policies, in order to develop critical analysis skills of the institutes studied;

- if necessary, formulate reasoned and motivated suggestions for reform of the discipline examined, in the light of the knowledges and the comparative methodologies acquired.
