Period

2° periodo di lezioni - aprile/maggio 2019, 2° periodo di lezioni - febbraio/aprile 2019

Learning outcomes

The expected learning outcomes are:
(A) Knowledge:
1. Using comparative methodologies in the analysis of private law matters so as to measure similarities and differences between the main legal systems;
2. Identifying the law applicable to a transnational private relationship, by selecting between national and supranational legal sources;
3. Arranging the national solutions adopted as regards the law of property, contract and torts in accordance to the different models that characterize different legal traditions;
4. Acquiring the basic legal tool necessary to practice the legal profession in a transnational context.
(B) Skills:
5. Utilizing the freedom granted to party autonomy in order to efficiently select the law applicable to a given relationship on the basis of a comparative analysis of the solutions adopted in different legal systems;
6. Transposing legal concepts from one legal system to another with an emphasis on the conceptual differences in legal notions that appear to be similar;
7. Predicting and guiding the process of identification, interpretation and application of foreign law before national courts.

Program

The course will cover the following topics:
1) Object and methodology of comparative law;
2) National law, conflict of laws and legal unification;
3) Comparative contract law: formation and fairness of the contract;
4) Comparative contract law: performance and warranties;
5) Comparative contract law: breach and supervening events;
6) Comparative law of torts: liability for fault;
7) Comparative law of torts: strict liability;
8) Comparative law of property and IP law;
9) Comparative law of competition and market regulation.
TEACHING METHODS:
Classes will be based on lectures (with use of slides), as well as group discussions and analysis of contract clauses and domestic and foreign cases, so as to instruct students on how the knowledge acquired through the course can be applied in individual cases.
LANGUAGE OF THE COURSE:
The course will be taught in English. However, students will be given the opportunity, at their discretion, to prepare the exam on texts and materials in Italian and to seat the final exam in Italian.

Examination Methods

The final exam, consisting of an oral discussion, aims at verifying the level of achievement of the learning objectives previously identified. The final grade will be based as for 2/3 on the evaluation of the knowledge indicated in the expected learning outcomes and as for 1/3 on the evaluation of skills. In particular, as for the knowledge, one question will deal with with comparative methodologies in the analysis of private law and/or with the legal approach to the assessment of the law applicable to cross-border relations; another question will deal with one of the substantive private law matters encountered in class (property, contract and torts) as well as with the relevance of comparative law for the legal profession. As to the relevant skills identified in the learning outcomes, a last question will aim at evaluating the student's ability to use party autonomy on the basis of a comparative analysis of the relevant legal rules.
