The knowledge of the general public law and of the civil procedure is required for an easier understanding by the student of the topics covered.

Learning assessment methods:
The learning assessment will take place through oral exam sessions covering the entire two-year course program, with the final grade being awarded in thirtieths and completed according to the 'inverted cone' method, ie moving from a general question to go to more specific questions of cut and content, suitable for envisaging further in-depth studies.

For attending students, learning verification will take place through:
a) intermediate written tests during the course - which will focus on the course program up to that point addressed - whose outcome will be taken into account during the examination;
b) in the event of failure to pass the aforementioned written tests, appeals for oral examination - which will focus on the overall program of the course in case of failure to pass all the written tests or on the part of the program corresponding to the written test (s) not exceeded / e-.

In both cases, the following will be evaluated in particular: the ability to report the contents of the program in a manner appropriate to the specificities of the subject and according to correct logical-systematic canons, the ability to link together the various institutes of administrative law, argumentative abilities, the technical-expressive capacity.

For the learning of the subject the study and the direct knowledge of the pertinent normative texts is essential. During the examination the student must therefore demonstrate direct knowledge of the regulatory acts:
- fundamental (Constitution of the Italian Republic, Treaty on European Union and Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union, ECHR Convention, etc.), with particular regard to the provisions relating to public administration and, more generally, to those concerning the law administrative, and of the most important ones (eg L. 7 August 1990, No. 241, L.

- referred to in manuals and study texts.


The teaching activity will take place through lectures (for a total of 65 hours, in relation to the number of 11 credits attributed to teaching). These will be integrated and supported by the examination of further teaching materials, such as a series of sentences referring to the general law on the administrative procedure (l. 7 August 1990, n. 241) and to the topics covered in the course.
The teaching therefore includes:
- mainly theoretical lessons, aimed at illustrating principles and institutes of administrative law;
- discussions of jurisprudential cases, aimed at promoting in students the acquisition of administrative-related vocabulary and legal argumentation techniques;
- practical exercises concerning the topics dealt with during the lectures.
During the academic year, the teacher also reserves the right to evaluate the activation of mandatory attendance seminars concerning specific areas of Administrative Law.
It is expected that regulatory materials, case law and administrative documents will be uploaded onto the e-learning platform.

a) the frequency is considered as an evaluation parameter, during the final exam;
b) the program reserved for attending students can be diversified; the texts and materials useful for the preparation of attending students will be indicated during the course;
c) attending students will be able to take part, at their discretion, in special seminar modules, and begin the oral exam with the exposition of the related investigations;
d) attending students will be able to take part, at their discretion, in any intermediate examination, the outcome of which will be taken into account, during the final interview.
The lessons could be carried out through remote teaching and / or audio recordings and / or power points with built-in audio and, in any case, with suitable methods to ensure opportunities for interaction with students and to ensure compliance with the course program.

Students will receive two days of the week, for a total of about 4 hours; moreover, during the period of frontal teaching, it will be possible to formulate requests for clarifications, as well as during the lesson, even at the end of the same. Moreover, the lecturer is available to agree on a different time of receipt, upon request addressed to him through the University email address, the Educational Secretariat or other institutional channels.
The opportunities for interaction could also take place remotely.
