2nd lecture period (2A) dal Feb 13, 2023 al Mar 25, 2023.

Learning objectives

The course is included in the learning area on Law, New Technologies and Sustainability. It analyses the most controversial aspects of the criminal law in the fields of the Information and communication Technologies (ICT), e.g. cybercrime and computer crime, from a national, comparative and supranational perspective.

The learning and teaching method is based on an IBL approach, problem solving, team working, cooperative and peer to peer learning.
Students will also acquire the ability to face and solve practical problems typical of the professional context in which they will operate, thus orienting their competence to the goal of contractual compliance and to the prevention of the judicial conflicts. Students will also be able to verify the practical and applicative consequences of the theoretical and regulatory framework and to set, in written and oral form (and also through group work, written exercises and the method of Problem Based Solving - PBS), the solution to concrete issues, using the appropriate and specific disciplinary vocabulary, adopting the correct lines of reasoning and argumentation, and formulating autonomous judgments.
