Objectives and Contextualisation

The task consists in writing a paper individually, only with the assistance of a tutor, which will promote and facilitate the group discussion of the various problems raised by the case.

 The thesis consists in the development of a practical case in which the student faces multiple problems, related to the modules of the program.

The student is offered the possibility of choosing, among four different cases, depending on the specialization that interests him the most. It should also be considered as an additional material of preparation for the entrance exam: Civil Itigation, Labor Litigation. Criminal Litigation and / or Contentious-Administrative Litigation.

 The final public presentation of the case, in front of a three-member court (formed by lawyers and university professors), also requires the student to demonstrate his knowledge, communicate his conclusions and the reasoning that support them to specialized and non-specialized audiences in a clear and unambiguous way.

Written resolution and oral defense of a practical case with multiple problems, related to the program modules.

Depending on the student’s preferred specialization and as another element to prepare for the entrance exam, there is the possibility to choose between four different practical cases, corresponding to the four judicial orders that are optional subjects in the test of the Ministry of Justice.


Problem-based learning. It consists of two distinct parts:

1.- Individual report:

The student must solve the case study chosen, with the support of a tutor. Each tutor has 5 students assigned to him/her, and must do three group tutorials to comment the case and guide his/her students on how to tackle it. The assistance to these 3 preparatory sessions is compulsory and for that reason there will be attendance control, according to the model attached to each tutor.

The student's final work is individual, and the final evaluation and qualification granted by the tutor is also individual. There are no formal criteria regulated on format, which should be appropriate at the discretion of the tutor; The recommended extension is a maximum of 40 pages.


2.- Oral presentation:

Each student must present and defend their work in front of a Commission. Each commission consists at least of two members, preferently a presiding professor and one lawyer.

As all the students of the master have worked the case with an academic tutor who has evaluated this work, the members of the court should only evaluate the oral presentation of the case, but they will have a copy of each student's written report with the qualification of the tutor. The court evaluation will be motivated.

The student will have 15 minutes to present the main lines of his work and the next 15 minutes will be used to discuss it with the members of the Commission.

Annotation: Within the schedule set by the centre or degree programme, 15 minutes of one class will be reserved for students to evaluate their lecturers and their courses or modules through questionnaires.
