Latin Module Information

Latin: Students are introduced to the Latin language as well as the culture, literature, and history of the Roman civilisation – aspects from which our legal system, governance, the Christian religion, Western literature, art and architecture, and much more eventually evolved.

Legal Language and Culture as a first-year course was specifically designed to assist Law students to understand Roman legal principles and the concept of legal development against the backdrop of Roman constitutional development and culture. It also covers Latin legal phrases still in use, which students will encounter in their legal studies and careers.

In Latin, students can do postgraduate studies as well. Join us for studies in honours, master's, and doctorate degrees. Please consult the Faculty Rule Book for Postgraduate Studies.
