Working on skills

You will be working on your legal skills such as basic legal vocabulary, communication and argument skills. This is vital to every law student, professional lawyer or those who deal with legal aspects of business, social work or public administration. But we go beyond that, we also include mediation and negotiation skills which you’ll need in your future work as a social-legal professional.

The course consists of 2 modules which combines theory and short case studies:

  • International Business Law (6 ECTS)
  • European Law (6 ECTS)

The modules are assessed in a written exam (with intermediate written and oral products on which you receive feedback)

The second part of the course consists of legal skills and negotiation and conflict management skills. These are assessed in an individual portfolio. (6 ECTS)

The third important element of the course is the interdisciplinary LAB work. You choose one  or two assignments for a local or international client(s) and work with an interdisciplinary team of diverse students on this assignment.
