Law 1029 of 2006: Constitution, mechanisms for conflict resolution
Gimnasio Moderno within the study of the Political Constitution and Civic Instruction, contemplates for its students a general illustration in basic notions of Law that without trying to reach levels proper of university education it considers necessary to educate men who respect the underlying social contract in any State. In this sense, throughout the students’ school life, they are instilled with the idea of resolving their conflicts directly or through Alternative Dispute Resolution Mechanisms (ADR) that avoid unnecessary wear and tear on the administration of justice. Likewise, based on the provisions of Articles 42, 43, 44 and 45 of the Political Constitution, the principles of equality and non-discrimination are developed, as well as awareness of the prevalence of the rights of children and adolescents in the Colombian legal system.
In the grades corresponding to secondary education, the constitutional rank of the right to work as a fundamental right is highlighted and through the explanation of the importance of second-generation rights, basic notions of labor law are taught. Finally, for those students who feel inclined to study Law in their university years, Gimnasio Moderno provides basic notions of contracts, obligations and other content typical of the first semesters of this career in most national universities.
