Course ContentsThe subject-matter of the course is the process of harmonization of European
Private Law and its recent developments. In particular, the analysis goes through
the structure and the contents of the Draft Common Frame of Reference, born from
the initiative of a group of EU Member States’ scholars, who went along with the
European Commission’s urging, and drafted a document that, starting from EU ius
receptum (the so-called “acquis communautaire”), is addressed to promote
knowledge and improvement of the uniform private law, through the elaboration of
fundamental principles, definitions and model rules.
