Abstract

This article sets out a thorough proposal based on communication skills instruction aimed at freshmen students who belong to the law degree course in which a program of academic and professional literacy is inserted. To fulfill this purpose, the conceptual framework that supports the importance of writing as an epistemic tool is reviewed. Furthermore, the integration of two concomitant institutional procedures is suggested, as well as the construction of a theoretical, methodological and didactic platform. Finally, the design and installation of a core course within the community of practice concerned is analyzed. The course is projected as a training space where students can optimize their written production processes, becoming more efficient communicators. This concludes that in the context of Chilean higher education, the basal course is installed as a key device to integrate general education and disciplinary guidance by promoting the reading and writing of disciplinary texts and collaborative learning through their pedagogical work. The incorporation of mentorships of advanced students from the same communities. The course also places the student to the texts that read and write in this faculty, promoting an insertion to the types of interactions and the challenges of academic and professional discourse.
