All the teaching is given in a practical way, through the resolution of practical cases during the class in a joint way between students and teacher. In order to get the most practical perspective, students must have worked on and solved the cases before the class. In addition, in order to enhance the eminently practical nature of this Master's, one and a half hours will be devoted to seminars for each credit assigned to the subject, in which cases or settlement practice will be analysed and discussed. Thus, in this subject the total number of hours devoted to seminar practice will be 15. In these seminars students will analyze real problems with outstanding professionals from the world of law, the judiciary and tax inspection with the aim of enhancing the eminently practical nature of the master's degree, in which students must work on a daily basis, in classes and seminars, as if they were integrated into the professional world.
