Learning outcomes

The course in Civil Procedure, taught as part of the course of studies to obtain the master's degree in law, is divided into two units with a single final exam. Subject of the first unit are the general principles governing the discipline of the civil proceedings which find their basis in the Constitution and in the general provisions of the First Book of the Code of Civil Procedure. The second unit will focus on the discipline of the process of cognition (processo di cognizione) and on the appeal remedies.


The subject matter of the lessons of the first unit will be the principles and general provisions of the civil proceeding.
The lessons of the second unit will focus on the ordinary process of cognition (processo di cognizione secondo il rito ordinario) of First Instance and the means of appeal.
The theoretical explanation of the principles and procedural remedies will be accompanied with the analysis of case law and with the help of models of briefs and summons of the civil proceeding.
