Each student has the task of explaining one decision within the course, this being a requirement to pass. Therefore, presentations are mandatory. However, they are not receiving a grade. All students must also attend and actively participate in the discussion on all the decisions and materials. This will take place in a friendly environment where everyone should feel free to express views and doubts with no risk – the only mistake students can make is not to participate! To facilitate the discussion, all the students must read the decisions and the materials assigned to other students to present ahead of the seminar. Therefore, reading the materials assigned to the teacher is not mandatory but just recommended.
