Course description

Formative objectives

In accordance with the recent acquisitions of modern legal pedagogy, the course aims to radically innovate the traditional private law teaching aimed at the mere acritic acquisition of theoretical notions: it aims instead to learn the typical application skills of legal professionalism.
The student will in particular be trained to use the theoretical knowledge from the legal solution manual (for which the study of the manual is sufficient). This encourages critical learning ("autonomy of judgment" and "ability to apply knowledge"), that is, a personal re-elaboration of the content of the manual in relation to the solution of the issues.
Communication skills will also be handled, especially in written form because most of the questions submitted to the student should be written in writing: both in the classroom and at home. For a more complete success of this training objective, the formation of study groups will be encouraged to answer questions.
Sometimes the questions will not require a "dry" answer but will be open to a variety of solutions, so that the student can start the autonomous use of the knowledge from the manual
The constant frequency of the lessons and the analytical study of the application part text will also be recommended. Only in this way will it be possible, by acquiring the rudiments of legal technique, to pursue the broader objective of developing that faculty of judgment - the aptitude of application of abstract knowledge - that transcends the limits of legal preparation but that in the legal experience of judging Has its fundamental archetype.
