Description
The historical development of individual states and their legal systems is impossible to understand without considering many factors. At the General History of Law and the State seminars, the characteristic features of individual states and individual legal systems are discussed, which are then compared in search of similarities or, more often, differences. To acquire quality legal education, students examine the reciprocal influence of the state and law in more detail. Still, with selected institutes and institutions from the General History of Law and the State course, other characteristic determinants of the development of law and the state belong to them, outside the basic, above all limited, material.
This methodological approach allows, for example, for differences in the protection of socially vital interests and the purpose of punishment to be singled out and compared in several ancient state legal systems, including in the Middle Ages through the protection of land rights and missed periods of legal development. For this purpose, accepting the law as a means of communication within society, we primarily use selected legal acts and doctrines in our work. Reading and analysis of texts enable the gradual adoption of basic legal terminology, while seminar discussions on a given topic in issues from the earliest times (e.g. justification of the death penalty) to those that occur periodically (e.g. restriction of personal freedoms in extraordinary circumstances) for performances that are part of the profession. The original legal texts enable the interpretation of their provisions and the elaboration of their impact on social life, even though the legal-historical understanding of the act itself expands knowledge about the social characteristics of its development. At the same time, such an approach strengthens and deepens the knowledge of the legal norm and opens the door to independent and critical thinking that is necessary for the legal profession.
