3. Course contents *

The legal clinic is based on one or more assignments that are prepared by a group of students. 

The assignment is developed in close cooperation with a partner institution, and responds to the institution’s needs.

A representative of the partner institution, who also serves as the mentor, will:

-              Introduce the assignment(s) to the students at  an initial meeting (at the university);

-              Host a meeting with the student group at the organizations’ premises;

-              Facilitate a final meeting  during which the students orally present the end product to relevant stakeholders.

Faculty staff will provide contacts with the partner institution; facilitate a student group meeting on the planning of the work (the students self-organize meetings in the course of the project); review a draft of the written end product and attend the oral presentation.

The assessment is based on the written document and the oral presentation.  The assessment is a collective one (per group),  although individualization through intra-group assessment is also a possibility.

 Both the staff member and the mentor evaluate the assignments.
