Learning outcomes

The course aims at introducing the students to the knowledge and comprehension of the foundations of private law, i.e. the fundamental concepts and legal rules governing private law relationships between individuals and corresponding remedies. Moreover, the students will familiarize with the methodological tools that are needed to analyse and solve private law cases with success. The students will acquire the ability to analyse and approach, in oral and written form, the basic legal issues concerning private law relationships between individuals and corresponding remedies, as well as to autonomously formulate judgments and arguments, on a basic level, with regard to cases, issues and legal situations submitted to their analysis and to critically adapt them to the changes in the context.
