Skills and learning outcomes
Description of contents: programme
The syllabus focuses on the taxation of individuals and entities in a international setting. Specifically, the content of the Double Taxation Conventions will be deeply analyzed, as well as its relationship with domestic law, alongside anti-abuse clauses impacting international transactions. Also, this subject will constitute the basis of the participation in moots referred to the subject, i.e. the moot organized by the Observatorio Iberoamericano de Tributación Internacional (OITI) and the International Tax Moot Court Competition organized by the KU Leuven University in Belgium.
Learning activities and methodology
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).
