Syllabus
Prerequisites: Students need to have passed Istituzioni di diritto pubblico and Istituzioni di diritto privato 1.
Examination methods: Written and oral exams. Incoming exchange students can choose to do their exams in English.
Assessment criteria: The exams will check not only the correct understanding of the relevant legal concepts, but will also require that the students explain them in a coherent and well organized exposé. The mastery of specialized legal terminology, and the capability of putting legal concepts in the framework of general doctrines of public and private law, will also be assessed.
Finally, a tentative application of legal regimes to moot cases will also be a possible way of assessment.
Course unit contents: Characters of (public) international law; sources of (public) international law; adapting internal law to international law; subjects of the international legal system and their organization; enforcement and international responsibility; dispute settlement mechanisms.
The sources of italian and European private international law, with particular attention to general concepts; a first study of private international law rules concerning contractual and non contractual obligations (Rome I; Rome II-general overview) and and of the Brussels I regime.
Planned learning activities and teaching methods: Classes are held essentially in Italian.
Some classes and seminars on specific issues might be held in English, in particular to permit the involvement of external experts and international guests.
An elearning platform will be used, essentially as a tool to complement classes and enable students to participate more actively.
Materials concerning the developments of international law, including multimedia materials, might be the object of discussion in class.
Students are invited to actively involve in the discussion in class, and active involvement will be rewarded.
Every CFU will be imply to 8 hours of class activities, including both traditional style classes and seminars.
Additional notes about suggested reading: The two books suggested for study (public international law part) are interchangeable.
Incoming exchange students wishing to do their exams in English should however try to use the suggested books in Italian.
In any case, the study of the course in English might be based on readings from Brownlie's Principles of Public International Law - Eighth Edition, James Crawford, OUP 2012, to be discussed with the Professor.
Possible complementary readings in English will be assigned by the Professor on demand.
Reading and understanding case law materials in English and French might in any case be part of the assigned study tasks.
