Course description

Specific training objectives
In line with the educational objectives of the Degree Course, the teaching of public law institutions provides students with the basic knowledge for understanding the rules of functioning of the constitutional and public apparatus, the relationship between authority and freedom, the system of sources and legal and political guarantee rules. The aim of the course is to impart knowledge of the main institutions of public law, with particular reference to the sources, the functioning of the constitutional bodies and the relationship between the internal legal system and the European Union. The objectives will be achieved through lectures, exercises, seminars, internships, tests with the support of the teacher who checks students' progress throughout the course.
In particular, the course intends to acquire:
1. Knowledge and understanding
Students will acquire knowledge and understanding of the fundamental institutions of public law, as well as the functioning of constitutional bodies. They will be able to understand the theoretical and applicative elements inherent to the constitutional system of the Italian legal system, as well as to reconstruct the constitutional institutions on the basis of a systematic and critical understanding of the knowledge acquired.
2. Ability to apply knowledge and understanding
At the end of the training course, students will achieve an in-depth knowledge of the functioning of the constitutional apparatus and will have developed the ability to interpret and apply the rules on public law. Students will be presented with specific cases inherent to the Italian constitutional system in order to develop their ability to understand and concretely apply the knowledge acquired.
3. Autonomy of judgment
The course promotes the development of critical skills both on regulatory texts and on living law, through an approach oriented towards the analysis of the dynamics of organization of public power. Students will develop skills to investigate, understand and critically analyze the legal and social phenomena of the Italian institutional system. The student will acquire an adequate understanding of the constitutional political system, also with reference to the relationship between the European and domestic system. The course will allow to acquire and increase the ability to collect and interpret concrete legal phenomena, useful in order to stimulate independent reflection on social, scientific or ethical issues connected to them.
4. Communication skills
The aim of the course is to make the student acquire good communication skills through clear exposure. The goal is to lead the student to know how to frame the institutions of public law by exposing information, problems and solutions in a clear and fluent way, so as to be understandable to specialists and non-specialists. The student of public law institutions is required to develop the ability to describe and deepen the topics under examination (indicated in the program) in an organic way, arguing the positions taken.
5.Learning ability
The aim of the course is to improve and develop the student's knowledge, but also to lay the necessary foundations to undertake subsequent studies independently. Students will be encouraged to deal with the analysis of current and concrete problems in order to allow the comparison and concrete verification of the skills acquired. During the course of the lessons (also through seminars and tests) the teacher will intervene on any gaps and methodological problems that emerged during the course of the lessons.
