Metodologia

Se espera que los estudiantes tengan una formación en derecho, por lo que este curso no será sobre la enseñanza del derecho, sino su aplicación a un alto nivel de comunicación escrita y oral a través de una variedad de tareas de lectura, comprensión auditiva y comprensión sobre temas legales. No obstante, se comentarán elementos diferenciadores de la tradición jurídica del common law (de la tradición jurídica del derecho civil). Los estudiantes mejorarán su inglés en esta área a través de: participar activamente en debates sobre temas legales candentes del día; examen de escenas de tribunales; concursos legales interactivos que forman parte del aprendizaje líquido, un componente integral de la metodología de enseñanza online actual (kahoots, quizizz, etc.); familiarizarse con la documentación legal, etc. Esto irá acompañado de videos, ejercicios de listening, textos reales, estudios de casos y tareas escritas. La retroalimentación de 360º será esperada y alentada en todo momento en un ambiente de taller inclusivo, dinámico y altamente participativo.
