Students must be on time and attend lessons regularly according to the timetable, and participate actively in lessons.

The student's June final grad, in all ordinary or extraordinary examinations, will be calculated from the activities and works carried out in small groups or workshops (A) and from the final test (B).

A)The score of the activities and works carried out in workshops during the course will correspond to the 40% of the final score of the student. This score will be calculated taking into account:

-Legal cases. (Practical exercises). The students will make at least six legal cases during the course.

-Public presentations: Each student is required to do a presentation.

-Student's works (research work, study of judgments and etcetera)

B)The score of the final test will correspond to the 60% of the final score of the student. The final test will be made on the complete syllabus. It will include two different parts:

-Theoretical test: It shall be made in writing with at least five short questions and a long question.

-A case study. The student will be allowed to use legal codes to answer the case, but not computers or cellular mobiles or other telematic media.

The Scholar may require the student to explain and clarify the test.

The score of the theoretical test will correspond to the 35% of the final score and the score of the case study will correspond to the 25% of the final score.

It is necessary to get a score of 4 in the final theoretical test in order to pass the subject "Introduction to Law”.

If the student elects to take the final test, the examination call will be over even in case he does not deliver the test. However, the score of the activities and works carried out by the student during the course will not be counted as a part of the final score in the following examination (September and so on); in which case the criteria will be: Theory: 70%, case: 30%

Marking Criteria for the Examinations:

The evaluation shall particularly assess the theoretical and practical knowledge, the proper use of tools of law enforcement, capacity for critical thinking, the ability to convince through reasonable argument or to engage in substantive debate, and linguistic skills: writing and speaking.


Teaching in the large groups will focus on both the theoretical and practical knowledge of the matter. Furthermore, the small groups will particularly focus on the practical side of the subject. Students will work with legal actual cases in order to be able to use legal data-bases as well as legal codes and statutes. This meant to achieve that the student will be able to understand legal cases, will develop the ability to synthesize legal issues, will draw up basic legal documents, and will be able to resolve the proposed legal problems.
