Modalità di insegnamento

As the present Coronavirus pandemic is happily relenting, lectures will be regularly held in an in-presence modality, according to the ordinary timetable.

This course participates in the "Unita" project, which allows students belonging to foreign universities (all of them participating in the same project) to attend online courses belonging to other universitiies than their own. Therefore, lectures will be also streamed via webex at the following address: https://unito.webex.com/meet/lucia.zandrino. Video recordings of such lectures and also other teaching material (such as PDFs) will be uploaded on Moodle and available to all students. Unita students can contact by email both Professor Zandrino (for necessities connected to this course) and our offices at unita@unito.it (for general issues about Unita project). 

All students are in any case kindly asked to register to the course and also to register in the Moodle section, as this is needed in order to receive emails regarding the course (e.g. regarding meetings, teaching material, exams, etc).

Lectures and meetings do not replace the studying of the textbook, as they will usually cover only the most relevant aspects of Roman law. Nonetheless, students are highly encouraged to attend lectures, as these will be very useful for the understanding of the many technicalities of this subject-matter.

Remember that the modalities of teaching as here described could change because of a changing of the sanitary emergency. Please consult regularly this webpage for possible updates.
