The exam is sustained in oral form. Only the students attending at least 2/3 of the lessons are entitled to take the exam through two written tests: the first one at the end of Part 1 and the second at the end of Part 2 and 3. As far as written tests are concerned, the student answers 20 questions with multiple answer (for maximum 20 points) and one open question (for maximum 10 points), without the possibility to examine legal sources. Each correct answer to the questions at multiple answer is evaluated 1/20. The final mark is represented by the average between the mark obtained in the first test (at the end of Part 1) and in the second test (at the end of Part 2 and 3). Students can also decide to sustain only one of the written test and sustain the other part of the exam in oral form. The same rule applies if the student fails one of the tests (obtaining less than 18/30).
Presentations of cases by the students -of which account will also be taken with a view to determining the final mark- will contribute to the development of specific competences in the area of public speaking and team work.
The oral and the written exam aim at verifying i) the effective knowledge and the acquisition by the students of the theoretical notions explained in the course, as well as ii) the ability of the students to comprehend and apply the rules of International Law concerning specific issues. Through questions of theoretical and practical nature, it will be verified whether the student is able to:
- identify, comprehend and apply the rules concerning the law applicable to cross-border matters and the application of foreign laws in the Italian legal system;
- remember, identify, distinguish and comprehend the subjects and rules regulating the structure and the functioning of the international community;
- identify, comprehend and apply the fundamental rules concerning international relations;
- identify and define relevant concepts and comprehend the technical legal language of the matter.
