Learning activities and methodology
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 (for the whole group) and case-oriented sessions or discussion groups (in small rooms). The activities carried out in small groups are subject to the ¿on-going¿ or continuing evaluation during the course. 1. In the lecturing sessions, the professor will present the main concepts and ideas, pertaining to each of the units or lessons in which the syllabus is divided. 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.
