    AIMS AND CONTENT

    AIMS AND LEARNING OUTCOMES

    The student will be encouraged to reflect on the critical points of the issues discussed in order to develop the skill of identifying and describing the differences between our legal system and those of other European countries in relation to the main private law institutions.

    The student will enable familiarity with the foreign legal provisions, and with the choices made by the juges in case law. Comparison with common law systems will allow noticing unexpected cultural analogies hidden behind different concepts and categories, revealing convergences in the solutions for the same cases ruled within different legal systems.

    TEACHING METHODS

    Lectures. It is necessary to know the Italian private law, therefore it is recommended to review the chapters of the book of Istituzioni di diritto privato relating to the institutions that will be referred to.

    SYLLABUS/CONTENT

    Attending Students:

    The second module focuses on the examination of some foreign rulings, in order to discuss about the solutions adopted to rule the cases; to grasp the evolution of foreign law systems; to assess how the Courts reached certain decisions, also taking into account the legal context in which the decisions were issued; to identify similarities in different jurisdictions.

    Not-attending students:

    The second module focuses on the in-depth analysis, from a comparative perspective, of some recurrent issues concerning the institutions of private law such as, in particular, human rights, no-profit entities, family and succession law, ownership and other property rights, the contract, the organization of the legal professions, underlying the evolution undergone within these areas in recent decades both in European law and in English and American law.
