The student will have the opportunity to know in depth the operation of the so-called autonomic State designed by the Constitution, and acquire the skills and abilities necessary for the proper understanding and management of:
1. The general principles of the autonomic model and the common patterns of the institutional organisation of the Autonomous regions, including key regulatory aspects of their financing.
2. Statute and Extra-statute instruments for the distribution of powers between the State and the regions (Autonomous Statutes, Framework Laws, Organic Laws of delegation, Laws of harmonization, and other State laws conferring of delimiting powers to the regions).
3. The various classes and categories of competences (exclusive, shared, concurrent, horizontal) and their respective ownership (state, regional or, where applicable, both).
4. The early relationship between national and regional legislation (supplementarity, prevalence, etc..) and its application to solve normative conflicts, antinomies and, in general, jurisdictional disputes within the framework of the Autonomic State.
5. The principles, techniques and institutional spaces of coordination and collaboration between the State and the Regions (Autonomous Communities), or, where appropriate, among the latter without the former.
6. The preliminary legal and judicial mechanisms for handling and resolving jurisdictional disputes between the State and the regional governments, or among the latter.
