Faculties and centres
The subject of Roman Law offers those who start a Law degree the means to acquire the forma mentis of the jurist. Given the prevailing conception that gives priority to specialized knowledge in a certain branches of the legal system, interdisciplinarity requires that the student be able to organize the information received within the framework of Law as a whole, in which reciprocal relations between ius gentium-ius civile form a part, that is, international law and national law, ius publicum-ius privatum, substantive law and procedural law, etc. What we seek is to open a broad perspective that goes beyond reductionist positions that are limited to the strictly national or local scope.
The juridical mentality finds suitable formulas in the compiled sources of Roman Law that go beyond the changing and varied regulations in force regarding the essential elements of an institutional conceptual nature that allow it to acquire sufficient degree of security and stability.
In this way, the decisive importance that the jurisprudential casuistic method of equity had in classical Rome, as opposed to the subsequent codification, constitutes a solid antecedent for the training of those who study comparative law and even European law. At the same time, the process of receiving the doctrine elaborated from the Corpus Iuris Civilis is fundamental in the duality formed by Common Law and Special and Foral Law, among which is Valencian Civil Law.
