Teaching methods
The pedagogical method is based on the following axes:

(i) Multidisciplinarity: the course is given by a tax lawyer (G. GALEA) and a tax consultant approved by the IEC (N. BISSCHOP). This complementary multidisciplinarity allows the course themes to be approached from different angles, which perfectly reflects the current practice of tax law as well as the daily life of the two trainers.
(ii) Legal and practical approach to taxation: the trainers adopt both a legal and practical approach to taxation. The lessons given always start from the legal basis and end with practical examples. At the end of each course, the trainers analyse (together with the participants) recent practical cases that illustrate the material seen during the course.
(iii) Interactivity: the trainers interact as often as possible with the participants.
(iv) Timeliness: in both the theoretical and practical parts of the course, the trainers give concrete (from their daily practice) and current examples to illustrate what they are saying.
Evaluation methods
