Studying Law at RomaTre

Academic Year 2019-2020

Spring Semester (March 1 - May 31, 2020)


Comparative Administrative Law

Prof. Giulio Napolitano


1. Objectives
The course provides an introduction to the study of comparative administrative law for both theoretical and practical purposes. On the one side, the course offers an intellectual framework to better understand the role of government and the different regulatory techniques existing in various jurisdictions, at national and supranational level. On the other side, the course prepares future lawyers and consultants to provide advice to companies and to individuals on investment, business and policy-making decisions, in relation to the different legal and administrative framework of each jurisdiction. The course is highly recommended to Erasmus and foreign students too.

2. Programme
The Course consists of lectures (section I) and case law discussions (section II-V), meant to encourage active students’ participation. Each case will be examined in the context of its specific jurisdiction and through comparative overview. Students’ evaluation will be based on class work, oral presentations and comments, and a final paper. Academic papers, cases and materials will be made available in class and on the website.

The Course is divided into five sections:
I. General overview of the most important systems of administrative law around the world.
II. The role of government, public powers and human rights.
III. Delegation, expertise and contracting out.
IV. The regulation of administrative action. Cost-benefit analysis, administrative procedures and transparency.
V. Judicial review and administrative litigation.

Class style:
Lectures (Section I)  and cases discussion (Sections II, III, IV, V).
Professors Thomas Perroud (University of Paris, Panthéon-Assas) and Maria Adele Carrai (Harvard University Asia Center) will join professor Napolitano in lectures and cases discussions.
