Learning outcomes

The course concerns the statutory regulation of the use of the means of transport in every possible condition. The course underlines the principles on which the system of transport is based and gives the student a method to examine and solve law cases. At the end, the student has to demonstrate to know the statutory regulation and to be able to explain it with appropriate language.


With consideration to the specific statutory regulation, the road, maritime and aeronautic contracts will be examined with reference to the regulation of the carrier’s liability. The course will consider Italian regulation, uniform law and the European Community regulation.
Great consideration will be devoted to specific contracts, such as the subtransport, the multimodal transport and above all, the supply chain contract, because the last is acquiring great importance in our commercial system.
With reference to every mean of transport, the problem of security and safety will be considered.
