Objectives
THE COURSE AIMS AT ANALYSING THE MEANING AND METHOD OF LEGAL COMPARISON, IN ORDER TO TRACE A MAP OF THE PLANET "LEGAL GEOGRAPHY" AND TO ALLOW ACCESS TO THE KNOWLEDGE OF THE MOST SIGNIFICATIVE LEGAL SYSTEMS ON A GLOBAL SCALE.
THE MAIN EDUCATIONAL GOALS CONCERN:
A) THE ABILITY TO INTEGRATE KNOWLEDGE RELATING TO ONE'S OWN LEGAL SYSTEM WITH THAT RELATING TO OTHER LEGAL SYSTEMS OR SYSTEMS THAT USE DIFFERENT MECHANISMS OF SOCIAL CONTROL;
B) THE ABILITY TO RECOGNIZE THE PLURALISM OF LEGAL SOURCES AND ITS COMPLEXITY;
C)THE ABILITY TO FORMULATE CRITICAL JUDGMENTS AND TO ELABORATE REFLECTIONS IN AUTONOMY;
D) THE ABILITY TO APPLY THE METHODOLOGIES OF LEGAL COMPARISON, IN ORDER TO ACQUIRE MULTIDISCIPLINARY SKILLS FOR A FRUITFUL STUDY OF THE DIFFERENT LEGAL TRADITIONS.
THE FINAL PURPOSE IS TO TRAIN FUTURE GRADUATES WITH LEGAL SKILLS AND ABILITIES THAT CAN BE USED AT A TRANSNATIONAL LEVEL, AND WITH A SENSITIVITY THAT IS RESPECTFUL OF DIFFERENT LEGAL CULTURES.
