Learning outcomes

The course’s main goal is to highlight the most significant features of the conceptual models in the frame of sales contract through a diachronic analysis, which goes back to the foundations of this contract in Roman Law: the course will specifically focus on the responsibility of the seller, the guaranties connected to the sales contract (for material and juridical defects) and the remedies in favor of the buyer. The course will concentrate on the different dogmatic structures of obligatory sales and in rem sales. The field of sales contract offers the opportunity to point out the two thousand-year-old stratification of structures and theoretical solutions, which today’s approach still look at (for this reason, several court cases will be presented). At the end of the course, students will develop the ability to formulate, in an autonomous and critical way, judgements and elaborated arguments on the main legal questions dealt with in class.
