Description of contents: programme
Family Law is undoubtedly one of the most dynamic parts of Civil Law, not only due to the deep changes it has suffered from the enactment of the Spanish Constitution, but also for being the most sensible to social and cultural development. This is shown, from the principle of equality and the equality of children and sexes, to the Dependency Law, which implements de the facto guardianship, like the figure of the tutor and similar and the enlargement thereof (minors, disabled and old persons). The first lecture starts with an introduction to the subject. Its goal is to give the student one of the most significant features of our society and the Law: the family and the different models of family in our Legal System. We continue with the indispensible study of ¿matrimony¿ or ¿union of fact¿ (non-married couples): beginning and end of it, capacity, personal content (rights and obligations), as well as the patrimonial base or the different economic systems of marriage. Study of the marriage crisis (separation, nullity and divorce) and of the non-married couple and its consequences. Filiation and the paternal authority. Filiation procedures. Adoption. Guardianship. -I- The student shall acquire, through the understanding of the subject and the critical analysis, a reasonable level of knowledge of the subject.

Learning activities and methodology
The subject Family Law and Inheritance has 5 ECTS credits, which involves acquiring a set of basic skills and knowledge on the subject. In terms of teaching methodology, in addition to traditional lectures, numerous case studies will be proposed (solving real conflicts, individually or collectively, analyzing factual, drafting agreements, settlement of economic system, partition of inheritance) in order to allow students to apply their knowledge to problems as they are submitted at the practice. A collective tutoring willl be outlined in the 6th week, prior to the completion of the first test of recapitulation, in order to facilitate this test before continuing evaluation review. The teacher can ask students, in time it deems appropriate, issues relating to the basic content that will be assessed, if possible, in a manner analogous to that the student will be questioned next week. Students must respond fully to the questions raised in the session assigned to collective tutoring. The aim is thus that the student, through his answers and under the guidance and supervision of the teacher, detect weaknesses in their learning and correct, if necessary, the errors incurred. Moreover, weekly, Professor schedule a weekly hour of consultations or tutoring with each group of which he is responsible.
