Learning outcomes

The course has two main objectives. The first one is that to introduce the students to the knowledge and experience of the juridical worlds based on divine law. In particular, the attention will be focused on the legal structure of the three monotheistic religions: Canon law, Hebrew law and Muslim law. The second objective one, is that to measure, precisely through the right, the progressive secularization (promoted by the advent of the technical age) of these three great religious families. In this way you can highlight the enormous distance that now separates the religious-based rights and the secular legal systems.

Course contents

In the course will be treated in a particular way, and in comparative perspective:

  - Sources (divine law and human law)
  - The legal status of the person
  - Marriage and Family
  - The most important bioethical issues

 

For the integration of 1, 2, 3, credits, the student must contact the teacher by e-mail to decide a custom program.

Erasmus students must contact the teacher by e-mail to agree a custom program.

Teaching methods

The course will be lessons held by the professor. He will have the task of tracking the general framework and address the crucial joints of the conceptual structure of the course. Italian and foreign scholars will be invited for lessons on specific topics. The final part of the course, dedicated to bioethics, will be developed by groups of students who will hold a lesson, at the presence of the professor, to their collegues.

Lectures will be given in the II nd semester. As a consequence, students obtaining their attendance certificate in the current academic year are allowed to take their exam only from the month of May.

Teaching will be carried out according to the criteria outlined at the following website:

Assessment methods

The verify of learning consists in a final proof which will explore the acquisition of knowledge and skills requested trough an oral examination sustained directly with the professor. Only the student who has already supported the exams of Constitutional law and Private law is admitted to the oral exam. In this way the student will be can show not only the learned knowledge, but also the critical and methodological capacities gained. In the same time he will must demonstrate to have some specific abilities. First of all, the possess of a mastery of expression and an appropriate technical language. The second one is the ability to move in safely within the system of the sources of this matter. The student moreover must have a clear perception of the information received and, finally, he must have properly understood the issues addressed in class and elucidated in the text books of reference. Learning such skills is easier during the course, the attendance of which is recommended in order to improve the learning process and therefore the student’s performance during the exam.

The exam will cover the issues described in the “Course contents” section. The examination entails the assignment of a grade.

Namely, about the oral exam:

 As previously mentioned, the aim of the oral exam is to assess the actual achievement of the learning outcomes: therefore, both the knowledge of the relevant legal issues and the student’s capability to apply it in order to realize the required logical-deductive connections will be taken into account.

By way of a mere example, the assignment of the final grade will be based on the following criteria:

Sufficient knowledge of a very small number of the topics addressed during the course and analytical skills that only emerge through extensive support by the interviewer, with the use of a language that is not incorrect but is not completely accurate either → 18-19;

Fairly good knowledge of a limited number of the topics addressed during the course and analytical skills that are autonomous only on purely executive issues, with the use of a correct but not fully confident and exhaustive language → 20-24;

Good knowledge of a wide number of the topics addressed during the course and capability to develop autonomous analytical skills, with an efficient and confident use of a technically specific language → 25-29;

Extensive and substantially exhaustive knowledge of the whole program addressed during the course, capability to develop very good legal reasonings and to critically analyse and connect different topics, with a fully confident use of a technically specific language that shows a mature ability to develop original reflections → 30-30L.

Students who need compensatory tools for reasons of disability or Specific Learning Disabilities (SLD) will communicate to the teacher their needs so as to be directed to the dedicated person and arrange on the adoption of the most appropriate measures: the same also applies with regard to the final exam.

Students have to book the final exam on the web application AlmaEsami.
