The learning process is based on a practice-oriented education. Therefore, regular lectures will be supplemented with in-class analysis and discussion of cases and materials, which will facilitate the understanding and application of the legal concepts. Therefore, the teaching activities are divided into "lecture type" sessions (in large group) and case-oriented sessions (in small groups). The activities carried out in small groups is called continuous assessment (evaluación continua) 1. In the lecturing sessions, the professor will present the general concepts and ideas, the main tools and instruments for the protection of the environment.
2. Case-oriented sessions will provide a practical approach to the different topics, through the analysis and discussion of real cases or selected reading materials. In the small groups, the curricular activities might also include "multiple choice" tests or other types of exams, covering a part of the course program. Those activities will be duly announced by the professor in the "Aula Global" electronic website of the course.
