Not less attention would be given to Roman jurisprudence; its method for finding solutions to legal cases and the praxis of dialectical debate and argumentation, during trial or in the legal consulence is its most importance inheritance for us.

Teaching methods

The teacher, during every lesson, explains the chosen topics at, at the end of the lesson puts the juridical and literary sources on Dolly platform, for helping students with some materials and opening tables of teamwork discussion.
