Teaching Methods

- Lectures given by the Professor (36 hours)
- Weekly reception shifts.
- Pre-recorded supplementary video material accompanied by slides.

Lectures are designed to facilitate the understanding of the subject, by explaining its basic concepts and offering the main methodological tools to assimilate them, therefore they are not intended to explain the texts and all the individual pages of them. The teacher reserves the right to choose the topics to be treated in class also according to the educational needs that may have occurred (greater complexity, difficulty in assimilation); students will have to study the whole program and not just the topics covered in class. Teaching method aims at fostering learning by presenting the topics in a way that takes into account their inseparable logical and systematic relationships. During the lectures students will be invited to express the concepts in an appropriate technical language, in order to achieve an adequate awareness of their level of preparation. Periodic self-assessment questionnaires may also be handed out, aimed to direct attention to some specific issues.

During the weekly reception shifts the teacher is available to provide clarifications on the topics covered by the program, and to periodically check the progress of the preparation of the students..

Verification of learning

The examination will be oral.
The following assessment criteria will be used to determine the final mark: • Exam failure: insufficient knowledge of the topics covered in the course; • 18 to 21: minimum knowledge of the above-mentioned topics, with some minor gaps ; • 22 to 24: complete, although not particularly in-depth, knowledge of the topics ; • 25 to 27: good level of preparation, characterized by an adequate technical jargon; • 28 to 30: excellent level of preparation; precise and accurate technical jargon and speaking skills ; • 30 with merit: further quality of the preparation is inferred from the brilliance and accuracy shown in the presentation.

It should be noted that total gaps concerning the fundamental topics covered in the course (basics, obligations and contract), will preclude passing the exam, regardless of the knowledge of the remaining topics.


Cristiano Cicero, Istituzioni di diritto privato, Le Monnier.


Vincenzo Roppo, Diritto privato. Linee essenziali, Giappichelli editore.

The use of an updated civil code and the knowledge of the main complementary legislation is also recommended.

More Information

Attending students are allowed to divide the program into two parts, following the instructions given by the teacher in class.
It should be noted that this possibility does not entail any reduction of the overall program and that the final mark will not be the result of a mere mathematical average between the evaluation obtained in relation to the intermediate exam and the one concerning the second part of the program.
