Lesson timetable

Learning outcomes

The course will be divided into two parts, in order to reach an adequate law knowledge gradually.
The first part will be focused on some basic and general notions, followed by an analysis of the basic principles and institutions of public law, according to their historical evolution. Such an approach will help first year students to overcome any conceptual and language difficulties.
The second part of the course will actively involve students: they will be invited to present an oral report on some specific issue, so that it will be possible to check their learning of the involved notions as well as their legal language. Such reports, if positively awarded, could raise some special didactic credits to be use during examinations.
