On completion of the course, the student should be able to

Course content

The course is focused on an independent and written advanced assignment in the field of commercial and business law, where subject-theoretical knowledge is developed and advanced. Within the scope of the course, theory of knowledge and philosophy of law are also covered, in order to later on be integrated with subject-theoretical knowledge.

Teaching and working methods

A series of theory seminars places strong emphasis on independent studies that are supported by the seminar sessions, where the student's own activity is emphasised. As support for the independent thesis work, the student should both participate in a number of work seminars and be provided individual supervision by a specially appointed supervisor. The students should also study independently.

Examination

The course is examined both through satisfying the seminar requirements, and though an essay that is presented orally and in writing. Active participation in a number of essay seminars, including public discussion, is included in the examination.

Students failing an exam covering either the entire course or part of the course twice are entitled to have a new examiner appointed for the reexamination.

Students who have passed an examination may not retake it in order to improve their grades.

Grades

Three-grade scale, U, G, VG

Other information

Planning and implementation of a course must take its starting point in the wording of the syllabus. The course evaluation included in each course must therefore take up the question how well the course agrees with the syllabus. 

The course is carried out in such a way that both men´s and women´s experience and knowledge is made visible and developed.
