Syllabus
Prerequisiti: Students are expected to be at ease with the use of the English language – (with a knowledge ranging at least within the B1 and B2 level in the Common European Framework of Reference (CEFR) – since lessons and interactive seminars will be held in English and most of the legal documents that will be analysed and discussed during classes are drafted in English.

The course requires also a solid understanding of the key aspects of Private and Commercial Law.

A basic knowledge of the elements of International Law and EU Law is also required. Moreover, to fully understand selected topics, students may find helpful to deepen the knowledge of certain notions and concepts through individual study. In any case, failing to prove knowledge of such subjects will not – per se – affect the final mark.
Conoscenze e abilita' da acquisire: The course aims at providing a solid knowledge of the main issues arising when market actors engage in cross-border relations, as it occurs, inter alia, where the parties to the transaction are established in different countries.
The course, through the study of the relevant domestic, international and EU rules, is meant to provide students with the ability to:
(1) negotiate, draft and manage international contracts;
(2) identify the court possessing jurisdiction to hear a given dispute and the substantive rules applicable to the case;
(3) become aware of the key questions surrounding transnational litigation, as it may take place before either a State court or an arbitral tribunal, including as regards the recognition and enforcement of foreign judgements and awards.
Modalita' di esame: Periodically, during the course, students will be asked to individually prepare and present a seminar on a topic related to the course. Students attending to the presentation will be strongly encouraged to contribute and express their own opinions and/or raise possible issues.

At the end of the course, students will need to take an oral examination which will cover three main topics dealt during class.

Non-attending students will be asked to take a written test which will host open questions on the topics dealt by the recommended textbook (see below “TESTI DI RIFERIMENTO”).
Criteri di valutazione: Students will be evaluated both on the quality of the presentation of their seminar (amounting to 34% of the final mark) and on the outcome of the oral examination (amounting to 66% of the final mark).
