The lessons will be held by combining the methodology, so to speak classic, of frontal teaching with a more practical one in which students are encouraged to participate and interact actively.
Lessons will aim at developing students' logical, interpretative and argumentative skills, allowing them to acquire, already in class, most of the course contents and, above all, the method to conduct, then, individual study.

Verification of learning

The oral exam consists of 2 questions to verify the knowledge of the notions achieved and the practical ability to solve problems of local government law.
In order to pass the exam, the student will have to demonstrate that he/she has at least a sufficient knowledge of the course contents and that he/she is able to explain them with adequate logical-argumentative skills.
