The teaching method currently employed by all Professors at the Área de Derecho Financiero y Tributario follows an active teaching approach, which entails a constant encouragement of students to examine and apply the current tax legislation and cases. Student accountability is thus actively promoted, and they are expected to make use of all the materials available to them (compulsory reading, cases, practical examples, etc). In this regard, the teaching method will be based on cases. Students will be expected to participate actively in class as well as to present papers before the class, as well as submit a final essay on a topic chosen by the teacher. In that regard, special relevance will be given to participation in class, as well as participation in the simulation of tax arbitration cases.
