Assessment methods and criteria

The examination is comprised of a written paper and an oral discussion. There is no need to attain a specific grade in the written paper in order to take the oral discussion; however, it will be taken into account when assessing students. The written paper will be comprised of five open questions, three of which are intended to verify knowledge of fundamental categories of administrative law and two the ability to contextualise the knowledge acquired within a systematic framework. The oral discussion, which will discuss the written paper, is intended to test the ability to reason in relation to legal questions arising within administrative law.
