Civil Law I
2nd Cycle Studies - Mestrado
Basics of Civil Law: General Theory of Civil Law, The Law of Obligations, Property Law.
Lessons will comprise lectures on selected subjects and critical debates on these subjects. In class, there will also be opportunities for indicating specific criteria or methodological guidelines that students can follow which will help them develop their research papers and Master dissertations.
The assessment method adopted in this Scientific Master Programme is the one adopted in Seminars. It comprises two stages: oral presentations by students of research in progress on their subjects, and presentation of written works based on such work in progress.
Encourage students to rethink and problematize new and old questions of Civil Law, so that they can take a critical view on the subjects that constitute the object of their research work. Guide students when choosing a suitable methodology for writing a dissertation in Civil Law, which necessarily implies a gathering of solid dogmatic basis of Private Law for problematizing specific particularities and current trends of the selected thesis theme.
