General assessment criteria are

  • the breadth and depth of knowledge,
  • level of comprehension and competence,
  • the proper use of sources,
  • the consistency of argumentation,
  • the conviction of critical analysis,
  • reasoned judgments and conclusions.

Teachers may define specified assessment criteria or matrixes based on the learning outcomes of the course and assessment items, and course-based parts of the completion methods.

Students complete the course by attending a researchers’ seminar. Researchers’ seminars involve scientific discussion based on the presentations and research of visiting experts. The recommended scope of a researchers’ seminar comprises presenting one’s research for the dissertation, serving as an opponent for another student’s research for a dissertation and, in addition to these two sessions, attendance at and preparations for 13 researchers’ seminar classes (2 hours per class). Researchers’ seminars are organised by independent disciplines or groups of disciplines. They are open to all the students of the Doctoral Programme in Law. Thus, students may complete the course by attending multiple different research seminars.

Assessment items: Course attendance and independent work.

The Responsible Professor announces the Research Seminar for registration when the course is completed.
