Competencies and objectives


Course context for academic year 2022-23

The module "Tourism Civil Law Regulation" includes an introduction to the law and an analysis of the basic rules and principles of procurement and consumption in the tourism sector. Its existence in the degree is justified by the convenience that a graduate in Tourism knows the basic rules that regulate the different tourist and leisure activities, understands the technical-legal terminology of this area and can interpret a legal or contractual document. This contributes to the comprehensive training of graduates in Tourism and provides them with the necessary tools to carry out their duties within the legal limits and to solve or redirect everyday legal problems related to their profession, regardless of the professional orientation they choose.
Within this framework of the student's legal training, this subject contributes in an outstanding way, since it implies the first contact with the legal field. In fact, the skills acquired by the student in this subject are necessary for the study of the other legal subjects taught in the degree, which provide the student with a specialization in those sectors of law relevant to the exercise of his or her future profession.
