Learning activities and methodology
This course should be particularly dynamic, due to the subjects studied and the numerous court decisions and controversies that have arisen around them in the media. For this reason, the dynamics will be to deliver teaching material to students regularly, in order to prepare exhibitions, which will be discussed in class. To facilitate the work of the students will be a voluntary group tutoring session in order to meet the concerns or make it easier for students to obtain the materials they need.
