Teaching Metodology

It begins with a lecture, followed by a debate of ideas, putting issues to students and, where relevant, critical analysis and review of legislation and jurisprudence. The latter part of the methodology is followed in practical classes where students do case studies. The support and assistance to students in their learning promotes self-study.

Demonstration of the teaching methodologies coherence with the curricular unit's objectives

For all the learning objectives, from Title I to V from the 11th to the 39th chapter, we use the lecture method with debate of ideas and expression of opinion on the subjects taught. The use of the Criminal Code is essential. The lecture method, case studies, critical analysis of jurisprudence and comments of texts are essential to prepare the student to grasp the theoretical concepts and apply them in practice in a real context. Thus, we use for Title I and Title II, Section I, Subsection I, Title II, Chapter 14: expository method, discussion of ideas and expression of opinion and commentary texts. For tit. II, Sec. 15 and 16, Subsection II, Ch. 17-19, Section II, Ch. 20-26, Subtitle I, Section I, Cap. 27 and 28, Section II, Ch. 29-35, Subtitle II, ch. 36, Title III, Chapter 37-39, tit. IV and V: expository method, discussion of ideas and expression of opinion, case studies, critical analysis of jurisprudence and comments of texts.
