History of Roman Law
نبذة عن المقرر
“ Globalisation is paving the way for the increasingly international legal transactions and disputes. As a result, solicitors [and lawyers] are required to work across numerous jurisdictions. Knowledge not only of languages but also of some of the relevant legal concepts of these jurisdictions is beneficial. Due to the fact that the French, German, Italian and a vast number of other legal systems have kept alive many of the Roman legal rules and principles , studying Roman law gives students a solid grounding in the fundamental principles of these jurisdictions.…So don’t dismiss Roman law as an unimportant module..: the knowledge it offers can be valuable to your future studies and career ”. So speaks a Law Student at the University of Cambridge on The Guardian (“Studying Roman law: Juno it’s more useful than you’d think”, 11.4.2016): I often use his words to show my Students that there are several ways to appreciate Roman Law , and sometimes they can be unexpected. Come and see what they are!
