Assessment methods and criteria

The final evaluation takes the form of an oral exam with at least three questions, with reference to the suggested texts and the parts indicated. The final examination aims at assessing whether the student has knowledge and understanding of the institutes and has acquired interpretative competence in jurisprudential pronouncements. The level of sufficiency will be reached when the student has demonstrated knowledge and understanding of the institutes as well as minimum application competencies regarding the autonomous, critical and reasoned exposure of the jurisprudential judgments. Below these thresholds, the examination will be insufficient.Voting of the oral test is communicated immediately at the end of the test.
