Private Roman law institutions following the structure of the Institutes of Gaius, a Law teacher at the Beirut Law School (2nd cent. A.D.). This module functions as a pedagogical instrument contributing to a better comprehension of the modern private law institutions which rely mainly on Roman Law. It follows Gaius’ tripartite division to law of persons, law of things and law of actions. An exhaustive scene of the private law institutions is presented: physical and moral persons, family law, divisions of things, possession, ownership, servitudes, real and personal securities, succession, division of obligations, contracts. The module also contributes to the selection of the students’ team participating to the Roman Law Moot Court.
