Learning objectives
Obiettivo del corso è la presentazione e quindi la conoscenza dei problemi centrali e con essa l'apprendimento delle nozioni fondamentali del diritto processuale amministrativo. Tale obiettivo viene perseguito attraverso due serie di iniziative didattiche. Da un lato viene offerto un ciclo completo di lezioni nelle quali queste nozioni vengono esposte presentando gli aspetti essenziali della loro articolazione sistematica, le loro origini storiche ed il loro significato concreto. Dall'altro lato alcune delle nozioni presentate vengono riprese in esercitazioni e seminari per diventare oggetto di uno specifico approfondimento. Le lezioni richiedono allo studente lo sviluppo di capacità di ascolto, attenzione, comprensione ed analisi delle nozioni presentate. Per contro esercitazioni e seminari richiedono un lavoro personale e sollecitano l'elaborazione di posizioni critiche rispetto ai problemi approfonditi. Tanto le lezioni quanto i seminari e le esercitazioni si fondano su materiali normativi, testi giurisprudenziali e riflessioni dottrinali, così da permettere allo studente un primo contatto con gli strumenti immancabili di lavoro del diritto amministrativo sostanziale e processuale.
Expected learning outcomes
Al termine del corso, lo studente deve dimostrare di avere acquisito una conoscenza dei caratteri del sistema di giustizia amministrativa e dei problemi giuridici che esso pone, nonché delle ragioni di fondo dei diversi istituti.
Occorre inoltre dimostrare la capacità di applicare le nozioni apprese a fattispecie concrete relative a controversie - in sede giurisdizionale e non - fra cittadino e p.a.
È altresì necessario che lo studente sia in grado di formulare opinioni personali in riferimento ai temi oggetto del corso, sostenendole sulla base di argomentazioni logiche e giuridiche.
Ancora, lo studente deve dimostrare di saper esprimere le nozioni acquisite con proprietà di linguaggio, coerenza argomentativa e rigore sistematico.
Infine, è naturalmente richiesta la padronanza dei profili di maggiore rilievo della materia e la conoscenza dei singoli istituti alla luce del quadro normativo di riferimento italiano e sovranazionale

Prerequisites for admission
Prior passing of the following exams is required: Institutions of Private Law, Constitutional Law, Civil Procedure Law, Administrative Law (basic course).
Teaching methods
The course is divided into two series of educational initiatives.
First of all, a complete cycle of lessons is offered in which the institutions of administrative justice are illustrated with reference to their historical origins and presenting their concrete meaning also taking into account the influence of European law and the jurisprudence of the Court of Justice of the EU and of the ECHR ( European Court of Human Rights).
The lessons require the student to develop listening skills, attention, understanding and analysis of the concepts presented. It is also required the indispensable individual study to be carried out in the same period in which the lessons are held so that learning takes place day by day essentially through the frequency and study of individual topics.
On the other hand, some of the notions presented during the lessons are taken up during exercises and seminars to become the subject of specific study. The exercises and seminars require specific personal work and the development of critical positions with respect to the in-depth topics.
The lectures and seminars / exercises focus on normative texts, more significant jurisprudential precedents, doctrinal reflections and, sometimes, even procedural acts, so as to allow the student a direct knowledge and use of the work tools used for the solution of disputes between citizens and public administration.
The calendar of lessons, as well as seminars and tutorials are published on the course website in the online university portal Ariel (ariel.unimi.it). The notices relating to any changes in the calendar and time of lessons, seminars and exercises are also published, as well as the date and time of counselling.
Teaching Resources

The manual is an indispensable learning aid. The study of above mentioned manual, however, cannot replace direct knowledge:

- the most important decisions of national and supranational courts;
on the subject of administrative justice.
A list of the main regulatory sources and the most important judgments in the field of administrative justice is available to students on the course website in the University online teaching portal named "Ariel" (ariel.unimi.it). The sources and sentences indicated in the aforementioned lists can be found online in the various databases dedicated to this or, as regards regulatory sources, in the numerous collections on the market (latest updated edition).
The course website is constantly updated with information relating to any regulatory changes and fundamental judgments.
