Law may be defined as the art of pursuing justice in the service of the individual and society. It may thus be understood as the set of rules of conduct decreed or accepted by public authorities with a view to organizing the coexistence of human groups and the guarantee of liberties.
Although the legal system in force in a given country constitutes the main frame of reference for law studies, the law does not exist in isolation in any of its dimensions. Indeed any legal system is profoundly marked by the history, politics and economy of the society it seeks to govern, as well as by its exchanges with other legal systems.
The courses taught in the Faculty take all these contexts into account and allow students to acquire not only a sense of moderation and balance, but also knowledge of positive law and critical and analytical capabilities essential for the practice of any legal profession. They provide training in logical reasoning and precision of expression. Moreover, the Faculty adds a practical dimension to its teaching through cooperation with members of the bar, entrusting some courses or seminars to practising lawyers and notaries.
