The Roman Law, History and Philosophy of Law Department was founded in the beginning of 2004 on the initiative of the university teachers at the School of Law in Como. Its aim is the study of the versatile aspects of the juridical phenomenon in order to increase the value of the historical perspective in its diachronic and dogmatic developments from the Greek-Roman origins to the modern and contemporary Age. The Department’s aim is also to increase the value of the philosophical perspective in order to study in depth the ontological and theoretical points of view of the law. The subjects are discussed in the following courses: Roman law and Ancient Ages laws, History of Middle Age and Modern law, Philosophy of Law, History of Political Doctrines, State Science of Law, Sciences of Interlinguistic and Intercultural Mediation.
The scientific and disciplinary sectors show affinities of method and interests so that they can be reunited in a single center: the Department. The Department assures a fruitful internal dialectic as well as the complementarities of all initiatives. The Department contributes also to the activity of the research Doctorate in History and Doctrine of the Institutions.
