as you already know, some of you asked to anticipate the final exam on May 17th, due to the fact that Lorna Hutson cannot come to Rome anymore. Unfortunately, as the final exam was already scheduled on the 22nd of May, this change could have been possible only if everyone agreed. As this is not the case, I confirm the previous schedule: the exam will take place on Wednesday the 22nd of May at 2:00 pm in room 3. Neverthless, you have to register for the final oral exam (which will be quite informal) which will take place on the 7th and 24th of June and on the 24th of July 2013 (as you can read here: http://www.giur.uniroma3.it/?q=node/1211) and also on the 10th and 27th of September 2013 (as you can read here: http://www.giur.uniroma3.it/?q=it/node/2617).
To sum up:
1) The final written exam will take place on the 22nd of May 2013 but, if you cannot come on the 22nd of May, it is your right to take the written exam during the others, official dates available. The fact that you can take the exam on the 22nd of May should be an advantage for you, in order to conclude the course and concentrate on other exams.
2) As in this course we already have many ways to "judge" you (attendance, blog, power point and final exam), the final oral exam will be reduced to a quite informal chat. In this occasion, we will tell you your grade and register it (verbalizzazione). Anyway, as you can understand, you have to register on one of the "official" dates and come to have this brief conversation with us.
3) The final written exam consists in a list of questions, AT LEAST one on each topic of the course (Law and literature, Law and history, etc.). You will have to choose two question to answer and you will have 90 minutes time to do it. No vocabulary is admitted. This means that, in theory, you could just prepare 2 topics but, of course, my suggestion is to study more than 2 topics (the readings are fundamental) in order to have the possibility to choose among the questions more freely.
I hope everything is clear. See you on Wednesday May 15th for other questions....that will be the last class before the exam.
