Teaching methodology and assessment
 
The teaching methodology of the LL.M. IP & IT is eminently practical, with a combination of participative classroom sessions, resolving case studies, working in groups to role-play contractual negotiations or litigation proceedings and participation in the internship programme in sponsoring entities.
The LL.M. IP & IT seeks to afford students as realistic an experience as possible, both in and out the classroom, paying special attention to aspects such as comparative law studies, command of English or exchange progammes with other European Universities, turning the students into lawyers distinguished by their training, goals and professional initiative.
Students can take advantage of an innovative Virtual Campus, where they can interact directly with the lecturers. The final assessment of the LL.M. takes into account continuous assessment of classroom work, written examinations (mid-course and final) and internships.
