Teaching methods
The expected learning outcomes shall also be achieved through critical reflection on the part of students, which will be stimulated by classroom activities that revolve around texts that have been suggested for individual study or for optional research.
The acquisition of these abilities will be verified through a self-assessment test on the Ariel web portal, and lastly, through an (optional) written exercise. Details on how the written exercise will be carried out shall be provided during the lessons.
The course is designed to teach students the ability to write legal texts, as well as to reflect on practical matters by taking an in-depth look at particular cases and issues. To that end, all theoretical subjects shall be accompanied by the following: examination of original documents and texts in class; sources made available for download on the Ariel web portal; and slides projected during the lessons, which will help students approach the textbook and make the content of the subject matter more immediately comprehensible and usable.
