Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

The goal of this course is to introduce students to Latin legal terminology, including semantics and common usage, both in Roman law (law of property and obligations), and modern law (public, international, criminal, private, procedural). Freshers without any knowledge of the Latin language are familiarised with the most important Latin legal terms still in use today and, by the end of the course, will be able to understand and use them appropriately. Active participation is strongly encouraged and counts towards the final grade.
