FINANCIAL TRAINING AND EDUCATION THROUGH MULTIDISCIPLINARY SEMINARS ON CONTRACT LAW
The legal training required by the European Higher Education Area (EHEA) model of excellence is based on the acquisition of skills that require the design of new learning methods with flexible and functional characteristics that allow students to acquire solid knowledge from an interdisciplinary approach.
The importance of contract Law as a field on which other laws are based (e.g. Commercial Law) determines a necessary interrelationship between them and promotes close cooperation between teachers of those subjects, in order to provide an overview of a subject with enormous impact in the economic field, such as the procurement of goods and services.
This requires the design of practical interdisciplinary seminars that promote the active process of acquiring skills and strategies to present reality as it is, not divided into areas of law, but interrelated between them to acquire an overview of private contracting.
Starting from the reality that is bank foreclosures for non-payment of mortgages students undertake team work that it is developed through two seminars. The first one is carried out by each of the participating teachers and his group of students with their respective subjects, while the second seminar is unique. In both of them, Law and Bussines students and postgraduate students take part.

MULTIDISCIPLINARY SEMINAR ON FINANCIAL EDUCATION
LOAN CONTRACT AND FINANCIAL PRODUCTS
In the first seminar the top three student teams are selected to present their work in an interdisciplinary seminar for students of Civil Law II (Obligations and Contracts), Commercial Law and graduate students of both disciplines. In the development of the seminar the Commercial Law students must ask questions to the presenting students. In addition, post-graduate students ask questions they deem appropriate and act as moderators in the debate that closes the seminar.
The teaching of contract law in EHEA´s model of excellence is based on skills acquisition that requires interdisciplinary learning methods that result from collaborative and coordinated work between educational specialists in different disciplines. This paper will examine the design of interdisciplinary seminars based on the study of cases decided by the courts and the use of ICT, allowing Bachelor of Law students to acquire the competencies required to face practical cases related to Contract law from an analysis of Civil and Commercial law.
