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.
