Assessment methods

Only oral tests.

Only students attending are allowed to deepen a theme agreed with the teacher (by way of example, on the subject of individual contracts or issues, the subject of case law or legislative innovation), which will then be presented orally (also with assistance slides) during the last week of lesson of each module. This optional activity will be evaluated and will contribute to the assignment of the final vote.

In the second week following the didactics of each module, partial tests are scheduled, both for attending students and non-attending students. The first partial proof is related to the part of the program contained in chapters 1 to 10, as well as chapter 23 (prescription and revocation). The second partial test (which can be accessed only by those who have passed the first partial test), is relative to the part of the program contained in the remaining chapters. For those who have taken and passed the first partial test, it is possible to keep the corresponding assessment up to the January / February appeals of the same academic year in progress. They will be able to take the residual oral test on the remaining part of the program within the same deadline. In the appeal immediately following the final term of the lessons, both the oral tests of the second part, and the oral tests of the whole program (total) will take place. Starting from subsequent appeals, oral tests will be held with evaluation on the entire program.
