The essential educational aim of the course is to provide students with knowledge of the institutions forming the entire Roman private law system, from its origins to Justinian law.
Knowledge and understanding: the approach taken by the course aims to outline the historical formation of the institutions.
Applying knowledge and understanding: by acquiring knowledge of the institutions of Roman private law, in its overall historical context, the students learn to independently identify the dogma implemented by Roman lawyers, within the limits of a basic course.
Making judgements: although the indications provided regarding the direction taken by contemporary Roman theory are only basic, they enable students to appreciate the cultural heritage.
Communication skills: the course aims to educate students also from the viewpoint of a correct approach to legal technical language elaborated by the Roman jurists, still used today.
Learning skills: teaching aims to provide students with the basic elements they need to make more detailed study – including during their degree thesis – of Roman law disciplines.
There are no particular requirements, as this is a basic course. Traditionally, the Istituzioni di diritto romano are taught along with the course Storia del diritto romano, which students are advised to attend.
The lessons and the exam will focus on the entire Roman private law system, i.e. sources of the law, law of persons, law of things, law of succession, law of obligations, law of procedure, from its origins to the Justinian law.
72 lectures; student reception by the teacher and the tutors.
Lessons will be provided mainly in person, integrated and “developed” with online strategies, in order to guarantee their fruition in an innovative and inclusive way.
Verification of learning
final oral examination. The marking criteria will be as follows:
1) failure to pass the test: insufficient ability to perform analyses and back up responses and serious shortcomings when required to critically examine the problems underlying the institutes and issues on which the course is based;
2) from 18 to 21: sufficient or barely more than sufficient level of preparation; minimum knowledge of the issues studied; presence of moderately serious shortcomings;
3) from 22 to 24: average level of preparation characterised by a level of study that is not particularly in-depth and by shortcomings that can be resolved by continuing the course in the subjects which study Ancient Rome;
4) from 25 to 27: and overall good level of preparation even if not particularly in-depth; use of adequate technical language;
5) from 28 to 30: extremely good or excellent level of preparation; excellent use of technical language and accurate, timely method of expression;
6) 30 cum laude: should the characteristics of excellence indicated in point 5) emerge at the maximum level, the board also assigns the cum laude or distinction mark. Those eligible for the “Tessera Baby” (card offering benefits to pregnant students and students with young children) are invited to advise their lecturer of any specific requirements they may have in real time, in order to plan the relative methods of organisation. They will in any case be guaranteed priority, as will students with disabilities, on the date and at the time of the call.
