Learning by doing

Practical methodology and experiential learning

The innovative methodology based on applying knowledge is one of the differential pillars of ESADE's Bachelor in Global Governance. It enables you to immerse yourself in practice with the aim of developing the key skills for your professional career such as: public speaking; legal reasoning; information search; jurisprudence; debate; and diplomacy.

  • 1

    Resolve practical cases and participate in mock trials in class. This is the best way to apply the legal bases and knowledge you acquire in geopolitics and international economics.

  • 2

    Outside the classroom, you will learn with unique experiences that include: debating leagues, Moot Courts, and simulation of United Nations sessions.

Learning by doing in class

  • Resolution of real and practical cases

    You will discuss real governance cases provided by multinational law firms, organisations, and departments. Working together with your colleagues, you will solve these cases by analysing the situation, discussing possible solutions, and applying the knowledge acquired. And you will apply the legal reasoning with which to pose logical legal arguments without the need to memorise legislation or treaties.

  • Mock trials

    At ESADE, you will take part in mock trials using the same recording system that courts and tribunals currently employ. The objective is to simulate a trial in an environment that is resembles the real one.

  • Research

    Research is an important part of your specialised training. Therefore, the programme will prepare you to be efficient in the search for information and management of sources; as well as the criteria for selecting the key information needed for your strategy and legal argument.

  • Teamwork

    You will practice teamwork – the most common working style in the sector.

  • Skills development

    You will work on those skills and abilities throughout the entire degree that are fundamental for a modern professional: including communication, public speaking, leadership, negotiation, and teamwork.

  • Final fourth-year bachelor’s project

    In the fourth year you will finish your Bachelor in Global Governance with the completion of a conflict resolution project related to your specialisation, in which you must apply everything learned during the degree course.

Learning by doing outside the classroom

As a student of the Bachelor in Global Governance you will participate in legal experiences outside the classroom. These are mostly practical: such as moot international courts, debate leagues and simulations of United Nations sessions (the United Nations model).

These experiences will enable you to develop the skills that are only acquired by practicing in the profession, preparing real cases, confronting other jurists before a judge, arguing, answering, and preparing documentation, etc. You will put your knowledge into practice while working in the same way as lawyers and diplomats.
