What day and time is the resit?:)
it's on friday, you can see this via links on student portal and my law
Does any of you know calculation of the gambling theory?
[(The number of questions you got right) - (1/4 of the amount of questions)] : (3/4 of the amount of questions)
Is there like a website where you can answer various multiple choice question about the topic?
Thank you!
Will the assignments that we made count towards the resit or can we redo them?
I think my tutor said that the resit will have open questions
When you choose to make the open questions on the resit, your assignment grades will be replaced with those grades. However, you can choose to leave those open questions blank, your assignment grades will then be used on the resit
I don't see any questions about the contract material in the previous exams posted on student portal. Do we not have to know any of it for the MC exam? (I probably missed this information due to my own inability to pay attention, but it would be very helpful to know)
Our tutor told us that the focus will merely be on Tuesdays tutorial (AKA mainly on what the book said), there might still be a few - but not a lot of questions on the Thursdays tutorials (AKA reader and contract) since those were tested in the assignments ;)
Thx so much!
Where do you guys find the info for Q2?
You value the comparative and historical remarks of your friend, yet you want to know what will happen in England in 1821 What did you answer at this?!
Hey! From my point of view that first part of the question is just a 'teaser' to introduce the main thing you need to answer which is whether English law welcomes mistake and if so, what are the categories. You will find the info for that in pages 87 and 88 of the Reader. Hope it helps.
Where did you find the info for task 3, for the error in nomine? because I have only find info in the reader in pages 49 and 50 and the Ulpian text but that doesnt give too much information for the 300 words
What did you guys write for Task 1? Is it utilitarianism or legal positivism?

394 and 485 Lesaffer
Hey! What did you guys anwer to question 4? I am confused if we have to say the categories (unilateral, common and mutual mistake) or doctrines (misrepresentation and common)?

did you guys only used the information from the reader?
Yes, the part in zimmerman and a digest of ulpian
How many questions you have to answer correctly to have 3 at the multiple choice exam? Sorry I’m stupid at math
View 3 more comments
12 with gambling correction I suppose
I think that for passing the exam we need 20/30
How should we refer the cali module in a footnote?
I note: Cali, "module x : ... - title of the paragraph" <> accessed 47 March 2078
What kind of mistake is on Task 4 in 1821??
Where did you find the relevant information for Task 4? ?
Last pages of the reader, english law has misrepresentation and common mistake
Aren’t the categories unilateral, common and mutual? I don’t think we should write about misrepresentation there, as it is a doctrine. Am I right?
Hey guys, what is the name of legislation that you found in question 3?
I think you meant Q2, it’s French Civil Code I suppose
I also think that it is code napoleon
in terms of notes and studying, how is everyone organizing their things? before i would do it by chapter or by country (for gov) but idk how for this
Timelines
study material from tutorial 6 won't be on exam, am I correct?
No it won't, it is only information for the assignment.
Which contract did you guys use for question 4 of the assignment??
View 4 more comments
In the reader under the chapter ‘types of contracts’. Let me know whether you choose locatio conductio or mandatum. Mandatum makes more sense but a lot of people choose lc
Sorry if this is too late but I went with Locatio Conductio
Hey guys! In the case of the question 4 of the assignment 2, does anyone know about another name given to the locatio-conductio contractus during Middle Age (1236)?? (If I'm wrong about the kind of contract, then the name given to the right contract in 1236) The only "new names" I see are stuffs like clausula or pacta sunt servida but I don't think that's relevant for the question ?

Plus I rembember that in the last tutorial my tutor told us that during that time the Digest was not fully rediscovered as the Glossa Ordinaria was not even written in 1236 if im not wrong
Ah that's true...didn't think about that my head is fried by now lol then I really don't know, I think I'll just write locatio condutio for both periods because that's what I understand from our literature and we are not supposed to use external sources for the contract questions so yeah
What is the name of the principle in Task 3?
Does anyone know the title of the legal volume of question 3?
The pacta sunt servanda
isn't that the name of the principle?
what legal volumes did you guys use for question number 1 and 2?

Where did you guys find stuff about the Medieval Corpus Iuris?I can't find anything in the book or online
Look at p. 254 of the book
where can you find info about Liberia extra ?
There is some information in page 264 of the book (Lesafer)
You really need to do additional research for that because there is not much in our literature
Is the contract under question 3 locatio conductio or mandantum, since p 21 of the reader states that persons of good social standard would be offended when being paid for a service.
The assignment clearly states that Giovannuccio has to pay 100 florin and adds "it is customary that someone as venerable as a bishop is paid in these occasions"
What did you use at Task 4 guys?
I personally still haven't reached task 4 yet but I believe that Lou said that they were using locatio conductio contractus. I briefly glossed over it and it seems correct but don't hold me to it bc I'm still on task 3 :/
can someone define/explain vulgar roman law? dont quite get it...
vulgar roman law was the interpretation and application of roman law by germanics, they made and interpreted it to their customs
thank uuu
Does anyone know the rules on tutorial attendance for legal history?
No attendance is required but it's better to go for info
Hey guys! Do we have to reference everything, even the info that we got from our course materials like the reader, cali modules etc. or just the “outside” information?

Ok. It might be my bad i just cant imagine someone using stabs to calculate distance lol
Guys! You cannot use them to see that the distance is. Its not logical. They are used to build millaria,which is a signpost. Check it out
Can we use online sources for the last question?
Yes
Does anyone know if it is possible to share the reader with other students?
I don't think this is legal because of the copyright
No area was marked for this question
Thank you so much for your detailed timeline, you make me pass the exam ?
What is the diffence between Institutional and geonmetrical systems for civil codes? What type is the german civil code?

did gaius invent the instiutional system?
The institutional system is largely based on the Institutes of Gaius, yes.
Hi guys to be sure concerning the 3rd assignment, in question 3 In the 19th century it's a contract of services or employment.. (?) And in the classical period it's a locatio-conductio, right ? And for question 4, It's "clausula rebus sic stantibus" and "pacta sunt servanda", all good ? Thank you in advance for confirmation or help ;)

services in the 19th century
Where did you find it?
Is everybody sure that the principle in point 4 is clausula, but not pacta servanda sunt? It says in brackets that it is a popular latin name.
clausula is also in Latin
Can someone please explain question 4 to me, I really don't get it ..

Thank you so much!
You're welcome:) Good luck!
guys how do you footnote the reader, because where the locatio-conductio contracts are described the info is based on two books. thank you in advance
you should footnote is in the els style and if this is not possible, you can footnote it however you want but be consistent in the way you do it as long as the texts in the reader are from a book and you have all information about it, footnote it as a book
I just footnoted the footnote at the bottom of the page :D
Question 2 is the French Code Civil right ?
Ja
Yes, all informations about this are in the book :-)
Hi guys, For question 3 of the third assignment, does anyone know how locatio-conductio operarum evolved during the ius commune period?
View 6 more comments
The codification period roughly takes places after the Ius Commune period, you're confusing the timeline. The three-fold division was developed in the Ius Commune period and mentioning that therefore answers the question. So in Roman law it was a locatio-conductio, but in the Ius Commune period the locatio-conductio was to be developed further by the civilians into three types: locatio-conductio rei, locatio-conductio operarum (which is applicable in our current case) and the locatio-conductio operis.
oh never mind- you're right. Sorry for adding confusion guys!
can some please explain to me what contract is concluded in the 19th century for question 3? thank you :)
i think they mean the contract of hire
Hey guys can somebody please explain me again the difference between locatio conduction operarum and operis? we have to choose one for assignment 3 but I still don´t really get which one applies here Thank you
operarum because operis is for an object
Oh ok that was simple ? thank you ❤
In question II of assignment III, do they mean how the Code Napoleon got adopted in France? Or do they mean it's influence on the Dutch Civil Code of 1838?
I think they mean the history of the French one
they mean the history of how it was adopted
