• administrative acts and measures, administrative regimes other than the express provision and control instruments, including those on private economic activities;
• the defects of the administrative acts and the administrative and jurisdictional instruments available to eliminate the aforementioned defects.

• know, remember and apply the principles governing the organization of the public administration as well as the interrelationships between different public bodies and between the bodies of the entities;
• know, remember and apply the principles governing the exercise of administrative functions and activities with the institutions and the principles related to them;

• know the institutions and instruments of administrative justice;
• express themselves in appropriate legal technical language, with the ability to critically read and examine, with autonomy of judgment, scientific articles and judicial measures relating to issues related to the subject of teaching.

PREREQUISITES

A fruitful study of Administrative Law presupposes a good knowledge of constitutional law and the fundamental institutions of private law as well as a satisfactory command of the technical-juridical language.

TEACHING METHODS

The teaching consists of a total of 54 hours of lessons (for a total of 9 credits) which are taught by the teacher in presence. Some in-depth lessons on specific topics are planned, which will preferably be carried out remotely.

Only attending students are also offered the possibility of taking an intermediate written test during the course, which does not have the value of exemption, but whose positive outcome leads to the achievement of a score, which can be used, if the student declares it at the time of official exam, for the formation of the final mark. Attendance requires attendance at at least two thirds of the lessons and is calculated with reference to the entire course of the lessons.

Students who have valid certification of disability or Specific Learning Desorders (DSA) on file with the University may request the use of compensatory measures during the exams (e.g. additional time, concept maps, modifications in the written/oral mode), following the guidelines (p. 5) published here. In any case, for further information, please contact the Department’s disability liaison: Isa.Fanlo@unige.it.
