The University is an admirable European invention which, since its medieval origins, has striven to establish a genuine community of people within itself, to create and transmit science, to constitute a space open to criticism and peaceful debate of ideas in its untiring search for truth, to commit itself to solving the problems that beset society, serving it but at the same time guiding it in a free and independent spirit.

  1. Because the transcendent dignity of the person and the respect that every human being deserves by the mere fact of being a human being demand our contribution to make them effective in today's world, I undertake to treat my professors, classmates and other members of the university community with respect, observing university manners, taking the utmost care not to hurt or annoy anyone with words or actions that show contempt, and to ensure in my attitude and presence, both in the classroom and outside the University, the respect that academic dignity demands of every member of the university community.
  2. Because abuse, injustice and arbitrariness should not be part of the relations between humans, I commit myself to make service to others my way of acting and not to promote unhealthy competitiveness in my conduct.
  3. Because the evils present in this world such as wars, terrorism and genocide must disappear once and for all, I commit myself to renounce all forms of violence and to seek a peaceful solution to conflicts that arise. Because the evils present in this world such as wars, terrorism and genocide must disappear once and for all, I commit myself to renounce all forms of violence and to seek the peaceful resolution of conflicts that arise.
  4. Because no man should feel loneliness, sadness, or marginalisation, I commit myself to ensure in my environment a suitable climate for the best development of human relations, without marginalising anyone.
  5. Because evil, disloyalty and falsehood must be combated, I pledge that my actions, my relations with others and my study will be based on goodness and sincerity, and that my aim will be the search for scientific truth.
  6. Because a society should not be based on selfishness, easy success or the pursuit of self-satisfaction and money, I commit myself to work with seriousness and enthusiasm and to accept the effort involved in all learning.
  7. Because every man should have access to decent work that contributes to making him a full and happy human being, I commit myself to be faithful to my vocation, to carry out my university work well and not to forget the opportunity that life has given me to obtain an adequate intellectual training, not to waste or squander it, and to give back to society the good received.
  8. Because poverty in the world must be combated, I commit myself to bear in mind that my studies and my work must serve the common good of society.
  9. Because all true science must serve to make men freer, societies more just and to protect life and the natural environment, I commit myself to study in search of the ultimate reason for things and to put my knowledge at the service of progress, life and the improvement of society and nature.
  10. Because no one should think that life is meaningless, that everything that happens is the result of chance, that everything is relative or that nothing matters, I commit myself to seek and show the meaning of what I do and to pursue the truth that underlies everything according to the vision of Christian humanism.


Basic Law Studies and Private Law

This Department groups together the following areas: Philosophy of Law and Politics, Roman Law, History of Spanish Law, on the one hand, and Civil Law, Commercial Law, Labour and Social Security Law and Private International Law, on the other. These are, therefore, subjects of legal foundations and positive law, the latter belonging to the field of private law, with a high doctrinal density.

One of the aims of bringing them all together is to promote research projects on legal reasoning applied to positive law, comparative law on obligations and contracts with a special focus on arbitration, bankruptcy law from a historical-dogmatic and current positive law perspective, current legal issues in the field of labour law, etc., adding to the legal perspective the uniquely enriching, from a scientific and practical point of view, of political science.

The dynamism of the teaching of the different subjects, fully adapted to the new didactic methods since the Bologna Declaration, has led to the implementation of an effort to strengthen legal reasoning, balanced with memory, which prepares students in the Degree for future professional practice by actively confronting the resolution of numerous practical questions that arise. The student is invited to participate in public debates in the Group itself, in the School and between Universities. Proof of this are the recent national and international prizes obtained by our students, which endorse the success of these initiatives and the in-depth work that is carried out on a daily basis with them.

Public Law

Our Department is divided in two Departmental Sections. The first one consists of the following teaching areas and units: Administrative Law, Criminal Law, Procedural Law, Financing Law, and Taxation. The second Section consists of the following teaching areas and units: Constitutional Law, International Public Law and International Relations and State Ecclesiastical Law. The basic aims of the Department are twofold: the first is teaching, organising, and giving classes in all the Schools of our University where subjects belonging to the Department are taught.

The second is research. In relation to the latter, the Department, either jointly or through the different areas or teaching units, participates in various internal and external research projects, both nationally and internationally. Different conferences and seminars are also held every year for the training of both students and lecturers in the Department.
