The basic purpose of the subject Real Rights (or Rights in rem) are to: - Achieve that the student acquires a reasonable level of knowledge on the subject. - The student conveniently uses the theoretical knowledge to solve practical problems.
Description of contents: programme
The subject studies Real rights. We have to understand for Real rights the specific category of subjective patrimonial rights that have as their object corporal things (that¿s why they are called real, in rem, in Latin) through which the acquisition, ownership, use and enjoyment of the goods is organized, permitting to cover the economic needs that may be obtained therefrom (ownership, use and enjoyment of the goods, credit,¿) A specific chapter of the subject is constituted by the so called Registry Law that studies the institution that we know as Property Registry. Furthermore, within the programme of the subject and due to its historical importance and weight that has included it within the special properties, we study intellectual property, even if it is not a Real right.
Learning activities and methodology
The weekly lectures are divided in two; a theory class or Magistral class, of one hour and a half, and a Practical lecture of also one hour and a half. In the Magistral lecture the teacher shall explain the most important theory principles of the subject. The student shall complete the contents explained in the class with his own individual study of the handbooks, legal texts and other recommended study materials. In the Practice session the goal is to favour the active participation of the student in the execution of activities that allow for the application of the theoretical knowledge to cases using the techniques of the legal practice (use of jurisprudence data bases, legislation and bibliography, use of concepts and tools for a proper reasoning, interpretation and application of rules, etc).
