The course is intended to prepare all interested students - especially first year students – enrolled in the Master’s Degree of Giurisprudenza, in view of the ‘Moot Court Competition’ in Roman Law and Civil Law Tradition’ (2 CFU). First of all, it intends to offer a teaching that can stimulate – from the very first year – the case-based reasoning method, and can develop substantial oratory skills: its operational framework will fundamentally be the agere per formulas of classical Roman Law; yet, an approach that also will take into account current legal professions is not excluded. Secondly, it aims at selecting the members of the team of the University of Verona among the most talented students. The Verona team will compete with the others from the Universities of Brescia, Trento and Milan ‘Statale’ (i.e. the parties to the so-called ‘Garda agreement’).
The programme is primarily designed to promote the case-based reasoning method through participation in a legal moot. The students are divided into teams, they are called to analyse cases taken from the Justinian’s Digest on topics already introduced during the Roman Law Institutions classes. Then they shall be called to present their arguments as claimants or defendants. The programme also places a strong emphasis on developing analytical ability, with particular focus on oral skills: the students will come into frequent contact with qualified professors and tutors to master the critical analysis of the legal issues involved in the case. Although the course is intended to simulate a trial per formulas, frontal lectures may be given to deepen some notions, furthermore illustrating the main oratory and argumentative techniques. Such mooting is intended to encourage students to develop legal skills through a range of innovative learning methods.
