Teaching labour law. What is taught and how is taught and what one learns

  • Abstract

Informations and abstract

Keywords: Teaching Law; Dialogic Method; Deutero-learning.

The article analyses the way of teaching the law commonly practiced in our universities, still strongly influenced by legal formalism and its methodological premises. These positions, despite being by now a minority approach at the legal theories, are perpetuated in legal education and in training professional lawyers (judges, lawyers) by a pedagogical method that favors abstract conceptualization of principles and rules over teaching legal practice, which remains basically a hermeneutic practice. The paper claims instead for a dialogic method in which teachers and students actually experience the interpretative practices that lead to the definition of the meaning of the legal rules, within the same "community of interpreters".
