Lecturer María Pilar Ballesteros Director of Seminar in Santander
María Pilar Ballesteros, a lecturer in the UIC Barcelona Faculty of Education, organized and directed the Seminar on Communication for Lawyers and Legal Experts for the second consecutive year. The second edition of the seminar was held at Universidad Menéndez Pelayo in Santander from 27 to 31 July 2015.
The course addressed a knowledge and skills area that is often overlooked in the curricula of undergraduate degree programmes, despite its great importance in the world of business: legal communication. This course was aimed at young law and communication professionals, as well as university students in the final years of degree programmes in Law and Communication.
An interdisciplinary group of speakers shared their knowledge at the seminar: renowned linguists, lawyers and legal experts spoke on general and specific topics throughout the week. Workshops were also organized so that the participants could put what they had learned into practice.
