Course description

Knowledge and understanding:
The course aims to provide knowledge on the one hand of the rules relating to the complex discipline concerning the negotiating activity of the PA, on the other hand to provide an overview of the open problems in a constantly evolving subject.

Ability to apply knowledge and understanding:
The comparison with the normative and jurisprudential texts aims to favor a concrete approach to the question. In particular, the study of jurisprudence solicits reflection on the practical implications of the legislation examined, on the relative operational criticalities and on the possible conflicts that can be found in practice.

Autonomy of judgment:
The study of positive data in constant confrontation with the various doctrinal and jurisprudential positions aims to stimulate the independence of judgment of the student and his ability to critically interpret legal texts. This in order to identify concrete solutions appropriate to the interests at stake.

Communication skills.
The consultation of texts and normative sentences, accompanied by reflection and discussion in the classroom on the various theses proposed in the doctrine, aims to favor both the acquisition of an adequate legal language and the development of dialectical and argumentative abilities.

Learning ability.
The ability to learn is stimulated by the subjection to students of "cases" on which to discuss, with particular attention to the applicable discipline and possible solutions.

The score of the exam consists of a vote expressed in thirtieths.

To achieve a score of 30/30 cum laude, the student must instead demonstrate that he has acquired excellent knowledge of all the topics covered during the course, to be able to critically analyze the issues underlying the topics in question and to have full mastery of technical language.
