Learning objectives
- Capacità di rielaborazione dei principi e delle norme giuridiche. Lo studente deve imparare ad applicare le nozioni di diritto apprese a casi concreti, attraverso lo studio della giurisprudenza della Corte di giustizia dell'Unione europea.
- Autonomia di giudizio. Lo studente deve imparare ad assumere posizioni argomentate e giuridicamente sostenibili con riferimento alle tematiche oggetto del corso.
- Padronanza della terminologia giuridica. Lo studente deve saper esprimere le conoscenze acquisite con coerenza argomentativa e proprietà di linguaggio.
- Capacità di apprendimento. Lo studente acquisire progressivamente gli strumenti di base per l'aggiornamento delle proprie conoscenze nel settore oggetto del corso, applicando, anche con riguardo al contesto nazionale, il quadro normativo e giurisprudenziale di riferimento.
Expected learning outcomes
Al termine del corso, lo studente dovrà dimostrare di aver acquisito una conoscenza approfondita delle tematiche oggetto del programma, ovvero, in particolare degli istituti principali del processo che si svolge dinanzi al giudice dell'Unione europea, provando di aver familiarizzato con le categorie processuali di un processo "non nazionale", eppure fortemente connesso con le quotidiane esigenze di tutela del cittadino dell'Unione, i cui diritti non sono ormai più solo di matrice statuale, ma vieppiù risentono di una derivazione "comunitaria" a cui si associa una peculiare forma di tutela giurisdizionale.
Course syllabus and organization

Single session

Responsible
Lesson period
First semester
Lectures could take place in presence if, according to the indications provided by Caslod, classrooms will be available. Updates will be provided as soon as possible (also on Ariel webpage).
In the absence of classrooms, lectures will be held online, on the MS Teams platform.
Lectures can be followed synchronously according to the first semester timetable. They will also be available asynchronously, because they will be registered and therefore available on the same platform.
The program, the reference material and the assessing methods, as well as the student evaluation criteria, remain unchanged.
It should be noted, however, that attending students in synchronous modality will be more often involved during the lessons, not only through the presentation of cases, but also with the discussion of materials, previously shared and available on the Ariel platform.
More detailed indications concerning the exams (online or in presence) will be communicated on Ariel as soon as possible.
Course syllabus
The attendance at this course requires knowledge - gained through the study of European Union law - of the overall framework of judicial remedies before EU Courts.
In that context, attention will first be devoted to the study of the main means of judicial protection available to the "non-privileged" applicant: the appeal for annulment and the reference for a preliminary ruling.
Secondly, the issues related to the structure and composition of the various bodies that make up the judicial system of the European Union, as well as to their concrete functioning, will be addressed, with the participation of external speakers capable of making the "point of view" of the various actors that ani-mate the trial before the Judge of the European Union.
The "procedure" will then be illustrated also through the description of the ac-tors and their modus operandi in the different procedural contexts.
The final aspiration is to illustrate an important procedural praxis, but still relatively unknown because it is not widespread through the ordinary instru-ments of access to the "eu" jurisprudence and, therefore, so far, only known by a few "specialists" of the sector, contrary to the substantive or material rules of the European Union system, now familiar to a large number of legal operators.
-
The participation at a hearing before the Court of Justice or the General Court in Luxembourg will be organised at the end of the course, forming an integral part of it. The documents on the case-file will be previously distributed and discussed.
Prerequisites for admission
The course is intended for students who successfully passed the European Union Law exam and, preferably, the Civil Procedure exam.
Teaching methods
The course includes a first part of lectures which will be accompanied by semi-nars, where an active participation of the students is required. Attendance is therefore strongly recommended, due to the structure of the teaching.
Teaching Resources
A reference text is not suggested, while it is recommended the direct access to the sources that regulate the process as well as to the case law of the Court of Justice of the European Union whose dissemination will be ensured to the stu-dents. A useful source of references for the case law is the Commento articolo per articolo indicated below, while the readings of essays, collected in the volume that is also recommended, will be a source of reflection and discussion.

Further reading material will be indicated during the classes.
Assessment methods and Criteria
