LEARNING OUTCOMES THAT THE STUDENT ACQUIRES Typically, the accounting and financial knowledge of students in careers related exclusively to the legal field is often insufficient for in-depth analysis of certain tax figures that require a solid understanding in such areas. For this reason, we believe it is appropriate that the first subjects to be taught in the Master's are subjects related to accounting and finance issues to ensure solid learning that results in a sufficient knowledge base to address the course.

The teacher may eventually indicate a list of works and exercises that the student can perform using Artificial Intelligence tools, specifying how they should be used, and how the student should describe the use that has been made of them. If the use of Artificial Intelligence by the student gives rise to academic fraud by falsifying the results of an exam or work required to accredit academic performance, the provisions of the Regulation of the University Carlos III of Madrid of partial development of the Law 3/2022, of February 24, of university coexistence will be applied.
