FEEDBACK & PEER REVIEW
The LLP program consist of ﬁve three hour evening classes moderated by an LLP Educator with hands-on homework
between each weekly class, while mentors remain available online (Skype, mobile, email) to clarify issues that
come up in between classes. To maximize learning, the course uses a ﬂipped classroom approach: Short lectures
outline the core concepts during class but most of the time is spent outside of the classroom doing practical,
hands-on homework in between, learning outside the classroom, learning in the the actual market.
