Description
Seminar in civil procedure law concentrates on the thorough analysis of Croatian civil procedure law. The students are obliged to participate in two-week internship in civil or commercial courts, in law office or public notary office, where they learn to critically evaluate specific legal solutions and where they can estimate the consistency of legal practice in applying the law. Under the mentoring of practitioners, students gain the skills which help them solve concrete legal issues by applying the correct legal norm on concrete facts of the case and create drafts of different submissions (claim, complaint) and court decisions (judgments and other decisions).

Matching Assessments to Learning Outcomes:

Knowledge of every student is tested in writing and orally. Written examination consists of two parts - a written test with offered answers of factuall type and an essay on one of three proposed topics. The student who earns a sufficient number of points in the written examination (18 out of 30 points) has the right to take oral examination.

A part of questions is focused on testing the accuracy of reproduction (for example, to recognise a competent body, name certain forms of litigation actions of the court and parties, recognise basic principles of procedural law in individual legal regulations), and another part are problem tasks focused on testing understanding and applicability of knowledge.

In grading the essay the student's general and legal literacy and the ability of logical structuring of the text is taken into consideration. The essay requires the analysis of features or facts connected to certain procedural institutes and is focused on testing the student's analytical ability and observing patterns. One of proposed topics is always casus that the students have to resolve by an adequate application of legal rules.

In the oral examination the understanding of the subject matter is tested, as well as the student's ability to analyse the effects of individual legal solutions on the rights and interests of the involved legal subjects and to discuss different theoretical and comparative litigation models and individual Croatian legislative solutions.

Within the seminar students are obliged to participate in two-week practice at the municipal or commercial court, in the office of the attorney or public notary, whereby they gain skills of critical evaluation of individfual legal solutions and assessment to which extent is court practice consistent in the application of individual legal solutions. The students who attend seminar under the supervision of their mentors from practice gain skills of resolving cocrete legal cases by an adequate application of law and of preparing various types of applications and court decisions. The skills gained are tested by a written seminar paper that is connected to a practical case selected by the student. The purpose of the student's presentation of the paper is to gain public presentation skills and reasonably justifiy their standpoints.
