2) law sources;

3) law of persons;

4) law of property;

Modalità di insegnamento

Front lectures, to be held according to the ordinary timetable.

Students are highly encouraged to attend lectures live, so that they can interact with the teacher and ask him each question that should arise from the lecture itself; furthermore, live attendance of lectures might hopefully help students to better understand the many technicalities of this subject-matter.

All students are strongly required to register both to the course and into the Moodle section, as this is needed to access to teaching materials and to receive emails regarding the course (e.g. regarding lectures, teaching material, exams, etc).

However, lectures do not replace studying of the textbook, as they will cover only the most relevant aspects of Roman law.

Modalità di verifica dell'apprendimento

Exams will be divided in two parts.

The first part will consist in a computer based text with multiple choice consisting in 20 (twenty) questions, to be answered in 20 minutes. Each right answer will receive 1 point.

A minimum of 12 (twelve) points will be needed in order to access to the second part of the exam, which will be only oral and consist in a question related to the content of the course.
