Information about the exam

The final examination will be oral.

There will be a non-compulsory intermediate test based on three open questions on the first part of the program (until the forms of government, included) on 3 April 2019.

Attendance in class is warmly suggested. An attendance sheet will be passed at each class.

The assessment will take into account the result of the oral examination, the result of the intemìrmediate test (if taken), the participation in class and the presentation of rulings and legislative texts.

Case-law presentation in class is optional. The planned rulings or legislative texts must all be presented, each of them by a group of max. 3-4 students ( tbd by 20 February). Please contact the instructor at the end of the class. Students not taking part in the presentations will choose one of the rulings and analyze it orally at the final exam.

  • If your score is under the said threshold, and you do have presented a ruling/legislative text in class, you’ll have to study 1 extra ruling/text for the exam;
  • If you are qualified as an attending student, but you haven’t presented any ruling/legislative text in class, you’ll have to study 1 extra ruling/text for the exam.
