CARBONE PAOLO

teacher profile | teaching materials

Programme

After an introduction on the subject and method of comparative law, the course will focus on the experiences of the Western legal tradition, with the illustration of the main Civil Law and Common Law systems. A special focus will be provided on the Latin American area, with specific regard to the legal practices of fueros and ordenações and the models of code reference in Europe. Among them, emphasis will be placed on the Italian influence on codification in South America and on the development of doctrine and jurisprudence in the related systems. With a comparative reading of the codes, through their evolution, we will analyze the first codes of the third millennium (especially the Brazilian and partly the Argentine one) in order to understand the current function of codification.
