Learning Objectives

Knowledge and understanding

Skill applying knowledge and understanding

The philosophical analysis on the developments of the structure of modern law could be applied both within the interpretative processes of single norms and within the more general framework of the relationship between society and institutions, for example in relation to the principle of legality, to the protection of fundamental rights and to the relationship between rule of law and democracy.
