Teaching materials will be distributed through the Elly platform.

Teaching methods

Taught classes are devoted to illustrating the fundamental notions of the EU legal order as stemming from the founding Treaties, from secondary law and from the case law of the Court of Justice. The interaction between the lecturer and the students is promoted though discussions and the joint analyses of practical cases, in order to favour a constructive dialogue informed to the respect of the appropriate technical terminology.

Assessment methods and criteria

Oral assessment. The oral exam consists of two questions, aimed at: a) verifying the knowledge of basic notions; b) the ability to link basic notions with the specific aspects of the subject matter at stake.

Other information

Lectures will be held on-site in compliance with safety standards, provided that further instructions on the ongoing health emergency are not implemented. Supporting material will be available on the specific, student-reserved platform (Elly) and will include slide presentations, audio-video aids or video-recording of the lectures.
