Students identify, and focus on, the principle institutes of the Roman Private Law (law of obligations, family law, and law of inheritance). They further analyze, correctly assess and interpret, based on a detailed analysis of the available resources in the area of history of law, their understanding of the continuity between the development of Roman Law and the roots of the law as currently in effect, with a particular focus on providing, in proportion, a critical assessment of the sources including a final evaluation of their analysis.
