Syllabus
Prerequisites: Commercial Law is introductory to Banking Law course
Examination methods: Students who attended the lectures (see below) will be examined only of Chapters II, III, IV and V of the textbook. Moreover, they are granted the possibility to undertake two intermediate exams, which consist of written tests with some multiple choice questions and a few open questions, both in English language; those who will successfully pass both intermediate exams will have passed the exam and the final mark will be the average of the two intermediate results. The registration of the mark will take place esclusively during the official sessions of exams («appelli ordinari»).
The first written test will be hold on the second day of lecturing of the fourth week of the course and will focus on Chapters II and III of the textbook.
The second written test will be hold on the second day of lecturing of the eleventh week of the course and will focus on Chapters IV and V of the textbook.
Optional oral exam for students who attended the lectures: those students who would have passed successfully both written tests will nevertheless have the possibility to modify their own grade with an oral exam, to be hold at the exam session (appello ordinario), that will focus on Chapters II, III, IV and V of the textbook. In such a case, the average of the mark obtained at the written tests will be the basis for the final mark, without guarantee that it could be bettered or maintained following the optional oral exam.
Compulsory oral exam for students who attended the lectures: students who attended the lectures but would have not shown up and/or passed both the intermediate tests (with a mark equal at least to 18/30 for each of the two tests) shall complete the exam with an oral discussion, in English language, at the exam session (compulsory oral exam) which will focus on the chapters of the textbook subject matter of the written test/tests which was/were not passed.
Compulsory oral exam for students who did not attend the lectures: oral exam, in English language, to be prepared on the entire textbook (that is, Chapters from I to VI).

Only those who would have attended at least 3/4 of the lectures will be considered as students who attended the course.
