Period

1° periodo di lezioni dal Oct 1, 2018 al Dec 14, 2018.

Learning outcomes

The course proposes a critical survey of different constitutional designs and institutes. Among those institutes, it considers constitutional adjudication as one of the main legacies of Western constitutionalism. For this purpose, the course will use the comparative legal method, which is useful in cross-national analyses. In this regard, it proposes classifications of the different models of constitutional review, thus shedding lights on the interrelations between rigidity, enforceability of the constitution and constitutionalism. It then considers cross-fertilisation, as the main form of dissemination of constitutional ideas.
Those attending the course will actively participate in it: during the lectures, the class will discuss and debate the different models for addressing judicial review and examine the most relevant judgements that have contributed in developing the role of supreme and constitutional courts in the protection of the constitutional frameworks (and their principles).
The course also aims to make students capable of assessing the several issues arising in a globalised world, where economic, legal, as well as political factors interact have an impact on constitutional litigation.

Program

Syllabus
The course will be divided into three parts:
1. Comparative method and constitutional law: classifications and models of constitutional adjudication. Political v. judicial review. The French constitutional experience. Constitutional adjudication under Soviet and Islamic constitutions.
The origins of the judicial review: from the English antecedents to the U.S. constitutional history. Concentrated v Diffuse judicial review. Judicial review in common law legal systems. The dissemination of the U.S. model outside the common law realm: Latino-American countries and Portugal. UK and Switzerland. The Kelsenian model and its circulation in Europe. Concrete and Abstract review. Retroactive and Prospective effects of constitutional courts’ decisions.
2. UK constitutional litigation?
2. Judicial Review in Africa.
