OVERVIEW

The II Form of Private Law Institutions addresses issues that complete the picture of the basics notions  of private law, dwelling particularly on contracts, civil liability, property, family and succession law. The concepts taught in the II Form  require the knowledge of those of the I Form , which will be often recalled.

AIMS AND CONTENT

LEARNING OUTCOMES

Types and classes of contracts (sale, lease, provision of services and works, mandate and agency, transportation, storage, surety, settlement, insurance, consumer contracts, subcontracting); civil liability and remedies for damages; other sources of obligations (administration of business of others, restitutions, unjust enrichment, unilateral promises, debt securities). Property law (in the Constitution, in the code, in special legislation); joint ownership, minor property rights, possession; family law; succession because of death.

AIMS AND LEARNING OUTCOMES

The course aims to make the student understand the system of the Civil Code, let him become familiar with the consultation of the Civil Code, with  legal terminology and, through some examples, case studies and legal reasoning. This purpose will be pursued with reference to some types of contract and to tort law in cases significant to outline the evolution of the interpretation of the Civil Code rules.  Another purpose is to highlight the relationship between civil code and statute law, with reference in particular to the field of contracts (eg. consumer contracts; lease; franchising etc.). The analysis of  family law will highlight the progressive implementation, since 1975, of the constitutional provisions into the Civil Code.

EXAMS

Exam description

Generally the exam consists of an oral examination.

Attending students have the opportunity to support part of the exam through a written test with open-ended questions, which will be given on a date placed during the lessons and agreed upon in class. This test aims to verify the learning of concepts covered in the first part of the course. If a student accepts the positive assessment given in the written test, he will have to complete the exam with an oral examination to be sustained in one of the summer session appeals, i.e. by September, to get the final grade of the course. If the evaluation of the test is negative, this will not be recorded and the student will have to take a final oral examination on the entire programme for attending students.

The examination of the students who are not attending the lessons will take place only with an oral interview, in order to check the learning of the notions  specified in  the program for not attending students.

Assessment methods

The intermediate written tests, with open-ended questions, aims to ensure ongoing learning achieved by the attending student, even for mere self-assessment.

The student can refuse a  partial low grade achieved in the written test and declare that he wants to take the oral exam on the entire program.
