Teaching activities

The business law course provides for two course programmes.

Programme A: It aims to analyze the European Union based legal framework for businesses. It covers: the outline of Company Law directives, the uniform company law and the modernising projects; Companies’ right of establishment; the formation process of a new company and of societas europaea; legal capital in general, rules on capital formation and capital maintenance, as well as annual and consolidated accounts; the EU-based approach to corporate governance, including systems options.

This business law program will not be explained in class, therefore, it is the most suitable for not-attending students. Textbook: Nicola de Luca, European Company Law.Text, Cases and Materials, Cambridge University Press: last edition, from Chapter 1 to Chapter 14 (pp. 1- 289).

Final Test: written exam, 3 questions with open answers (due to covid-19 emergency, I have to assess whether a written test may be carried out).

Programme B: This business law program will be explained in class, therefore it is the most suitable for attending students. It will cover the payment service business, from a contract law, antitrust law, consumer law, company law and data protection law, stanpdpoint, paying attention to blockchain, fintech and cryptoassets issues. The above topics are analysed within the EU-based framework. 

Coursebook: study materials uploaded on moodle system.

Mid-Terms (based on the course programme explained in class). On this course programme, it will be held three mid-terms (Programme B); both attending and not-attending students are entitled to do mid-terms. The students who pass all mid-terms are entitled to confirm final mid-term grade as business law grade, but they can also do business law exam on the whole programme during the regular exam sessions with a view of improving final mid-term grade.

Frequent Questions on Business Law Program B:

1) I want to improve final mid-term grade and I decide to do business law exam on January, but I do not pass the exam, what happens? Nothing, you still have your final mid-term grade (until Semptember 2020) and you may try to do business law exam again and again in one of the following exam sessions (January, Feb., June, July, September);

2) I failed one of the mid-terms, what happens? You cannot enjoy a final mid-term grade any longer, so you must do regular business law exam since January;

3) I passed all mid-terms and I enjoyed final mid-term grade; I decided to accept final mid-term grade as final business law exam, what is the next step? In January, or in one of the other regular exam sessions, you will register for business law exam writing in the footnotes that you want to accept your final mid-term grade.

4) Special case: I am Tom, a business law student, and I attended business law course during the Winter term; I passed all mid-terms. In the end, my final mid-term grade is 20 (out of 30). I accepted my final mid-term grade as final business law grade. Therefore, when I register online for January exam, I wrote in the footnotes that I want to accept my final mid-term grade as business law grade. Later on, in June, I think business law grade is too low and I have time to improve it, what can I do? Nothing! You cannot change your mind any longer: your final mid-term grade became final business law grade and…game over!

Final Test (during the regular exam sessions): apart from the course programme you chose, the business law exam is organized in the following way:

1) it is traditionally a written exam (we'll what happens in January with the covid-19 emergency);

2) during the exam, you cannot use the Internet and any book or study materials;

3) the written test is made up of three questions with open answers.
