Skrócony opis: (tylko po angielsku)

During the course we will discuss some crucial legal institutions and phenomena that pertain to the Private Laws of Europe. They will be analysed as to demonstrate the emerging of a European Private Law conceived as a kind of a mixed legal system. The method consists in synchroncal and diachronical comparison combined.

The main aim is to extend our way of thinking about law beyond the frame of one's national legal order. The course gives ability to orientate in the fundamental legal concepts of the European Tradition of Private Law. The combination of diachronic and synchronic comparison serves as a critical function to evaluate the law in force and to understand the tendencies in its development.
