- the ability to apply standard logics to legal cases and legal issues;
- the ability to analyze logically and critically legal discourses and reasonings and to identify argumentative fallacies, gaps, or ambiguities;
- the ability to correctly communicate and explain logical problems, and their solutions to both specialists and non-specialists;
