Assessment methods and criteria

The exam will be carried out as oral exam. It is aimed at testing the students knowledge of the basics of the discipline and moreover at checking their capability to tackle, in a critical way, the dynamics of Italian public administration, thanks to methodology and principles they must have acquired, and therefore to be able to continue studying independently the more complex topics of administrative law in its changing patterns, with a problem solving approach.
