    Faculty of Law and Jurisprudenc

    General Presentation

    In 1780 the Academy of Law, one of the oldest Higher Education Institution in Romania, was founded in Oradea. By a Royal decree issued on the 4th of May 1874 the Academy was transformed into a Faculty of Law, which used to have 4 year degree courses and 8 departments: Roman Law, Criminal Law, Civil Law, Commercial and Cambia Law, Financial Law, Common and Canon (Ecclesiastical) Law. The Academy of Law of Oradea used to have a special impact on Romanian cultural life, since many prominent people studied here and were very active.

    Now the Faculty of Law and Jurisprudence has more than 1500 students and more than 500 of them receive government grants. The educational curriculum contains for each year fundamental compulsory subject's optional and facultative subjects. Since the academic year 1997-1998 our faculty has adhered to the European Credit Transfer System which is now the basic for curriculum and it is meant to give the students the opportunity to study in other universities from our country and abroad. The Faculty of Law and Jurisprudence was accredited in 1999. During the courses they insist on the thoroughgoing study of the knowledge about European legislation, in this regard a compulsory object - community Law - has been introduced. This subject is to be emphasized because integration into the European Union requires the achievement of a two - leveled compatibility: firstly, the legislation of the candidate country should be compatible to the legislation of the E.U. members, secondly, the specialists in Romania should have a similar training to the specialists of other countries.
