Learning outcomes

The course aims at analysing both the traditional fields of labour law: employment law and trade union law. Specifically, it shall provide the necessary conceptual, normative and methodological bases for examining and understanding the system of heteronomous and autonomous regulatory sources, also in the light of case-law and doctrine interpretative perspectives. The purpose of the course is to make the student capable of dealing with labour law in its dynamic development, pointing out the interconnections between the different topics, as well as assessing the issues arising out the implementation of the theoretical and regulatory framework, through correct reasoning and arguments.

MM: UL1
------------------------
Teaching modalities are different depending on whether students are attending or not. As for attending students, teaching modalities include: i) classroom-taught lessons, aimed at providing basic notions, theoretical categories and the relevant regulatory framework; ii) workshops, aimed at analysing the practical issues arising in the implementation of the theoretical system, with the support of case-law references. Two booklets will be uploaded on the e-learning platform: one with the relevant normative sources, another one with a collection of the relevant case-law and research material. Students can meet the teacher during his office-time and will be provided with a detailed calendar of the lessons, with their specific dates and contents. Non-attending students will be provided with the support of an up-dated text-book. The content of this text-book is consistent with the topics analysed and discussed in the classroom lessons. Students can also get access to the additional materials available on the e-learning platform.
