The course of Private Law Institutions aims to look at the basic scheme of the various institutions through which to bring them back to the system.

Teaching Methods

The training process includes:
- theoretical framing lessons that focus on the themes in which the course program is structured;
- practical exercises and discussions to promote the development of the critical sense and the ability to apply the logical-analytical tools dealt with during the lessons;
- reading and discussing articles of newspapers and specialized journals on subjects relevant to the theoretical issues dealt with in the course.


The student can study any private law textbook. However, there are some texts that the student can choose alternatively:
- BOCCHINI-QUADRI, Diritto Privato, Torino, last ed.
- TORRENTE-SCHLESINGER, Manuale di Diritto Privato, Milano, last ed.
The study of the text must be accompanied by the consultation of the civil code in an updated edition.

Learning assessment

Verification is based on an oral test conducted by administering questions related to the study program; in answering the questions students will have to prove that they know how to expose the basic concepts learned during their study. The vote of the oral examination is expressed in scale from 0 to 30.

More information

The student should be able to demonstrate that he has gained familiarity with the language and logic of Private Law and, therefore, has acquired a method of legal analysis of relations between individuals, for which knowledge of norms and concepts is an indefinable premise.
