The Course will be mainly focused on contract law, with a glance at some rules within the field of legal obligation
Students are expected to manage with critical attitude some main topics of contract law and the law of obligation.
AIMS AND LEARNING OUTCOMES
The main purpose of the teaching is to offer an in-depth knowledge of the general discipline of the obligation and the contract; the student is called to develop those concepts already learned in the course of Institutions of private law, deepening the interpretative problems that jurisprudence and doctrine have highlighted in the application of the general provisions on the contract.
At the end of the course, the student will have acquired in-depth and updated knowledge of the most recent legislative, jurisprudential and doctrinal developments of an institution - the contract - which plays a fundamental role in private law and, more generally, in the economic context ; the connection between contract and deal, between contract and market will be the subject of particular attention.
Some significant doctrinal and jurisprudential materials will be read and discussed in class, useful for deepening some theoretical aspects of the subject.
The course of Civil Law I aims, in a first part, to illustrate to students certain aspects of the law of obligation; in a second part, the contract will be studied; in a third part, the new contract figures will be identified, also in a supranational perspective (in particular: the so-called asymmetric contract), identifying their characteristics and discipline.
To acquire sufficient preparation for the exam, in addition to individual study, attendance is recommended.
This implies, for the student, the need to:
- know, remembering the content, the provisions of the Civil Code under study;
- understand and be able to critically evaluate some application and interpretative problems that have arisen in certain aspects of the subject being taught;
- acquire, in solving the problems posed by the contract, an approach based on a combined application of different methods (dogmatic / conceptual / axiological / empirical);
- knowing how to read, understand and critically evaluate the text of a sentence or a doctrinal contribution;
- express themselves in an appropriate legal technical language.
Students must have passed Diritto Privato I and II.

Lectures and class participation.
The course will be held in the second semester
The exam will be focused on the written skills of the students in the construction of a legal argument related to contract law.
The exam is written (10 open questions: 3 points for each question).
The questions will not require a mnemonic answer but the development of a reasoning that denotes the acquisition of a critical capacity.
In particular, in answering the questions, students will be invited to develop both theoretical and argumentative aspects aimed at bringing out the problematic nature of the institution under analysis, as well as the elements around which to build the reasoning.
The civil code can be consulted (not commented).
