Learning outcomes

The course is included in the learning area Global dimension of legal phenomena, and aims at providing students with advanced legal knowledge of the global dynamics of legal phenomena and their functioning. A specialist in transnational law must be able to analyse global phenomena, including the more complex ones (socio-economic, political, related to climate change) by using methods and key concepts of modern comparative public law.
At the end of the course, the student be familiar with the analysis and the understanding of differentiated regulatory systems that complete the legal approach to environmental, social and economic sustainability, with particular reference to the multilevel and transnational functioning of modern law.
The student will acquire the ability to address and to solve real problems of the professional context in which he/she will operate by orienting his/her competence to the compliance and prevention of judicial conflict. He/she will be able to decode the practical consequences of the regulatory framework and to solve concrete problems – in written and oral form as well as through group work, and by resorting to the method of Problem Based Solving (PBS). Students will become familiar with the appropriate, specific disciplinary vocabulary, adopting the correct lines of reasoning and argumentation, and making independent judgments. The teaching method used is functional to the continuous learning and updating of acquired knowledge.
