The course aims to introduce students to comparative law with particular regard to private law and non-western legal traditions.
Given the growing influences deriving from realities other than Italian and European, the jurist's vision cannot be limited to domestic law.
It is therefore necessary to understand the foreign legal mentality and how issues similar to ours are resolved in other countries.
Teaching of the history and analysis of legal systems
Since an institutional knowledge of domestic private law is necessary, it is recommended to review the handbook of private law and public law
