Exam description

EXAMINATION METHOD.

The exam consists of an oral interview that includes 2/3 questions which can range over the entire program assigned to them: the most general first, and the remaining ones of a more specific nature. In addition to the knowledge of the individual institutions, the student's ability to link the concepts and to reason on applicable cases and rules is appreciated.

At the student's choice the exam can take place in written form.

The exam tends to verify that the student is able to orientate himself in the private legal system, if he knows categories and institutions and its functioning and has acquired the ability to identify and apply specific rules to concrete cases. Through questions of a general theoretical or more specific type, it is verified whether the student is able to:

  • identify and define legal concepts using an appropriate technical language.
  • Understand and interpret the rules.
  • Identify and apply appropriate regulatory provisions to resolve conflicts between individuals.
