Learning outcomes

The course deals with administrative law, namely the law governing the public administrations and their relations with private individuals. In particular, the object of study is:
administrative organisation understood as the complex body of offices coordinated according to an administrative plan;
administrative activity understood as the totality of the acts and operations – globally relevant – aimed at pursuing the public interest.

The course has a twofold objective:
• providing the fundamental notions and the method for critically understanding and interpreting administrative law.
• developing an ability for problem solving based on logical argumentation – which should be presented using technically correct and appropriate terminology – of legal problems relating to administrative organisation and activity.
