The Interfaculty Centre for Law History and Roman Law

aims to promote and develop interdisciplinary collaboration on topics which can be studied by historians and legal practitioners alike.



  • Build a pathway between the Faculty of Law and the Faculty of Arts and Humanities, strengthening their academic collaboration, so that common issues can be studied from complementary or comparative perspectives.
  • Promote conferences, publications and other research dealing with Law History and Roman Law undertaken at the University of Neuchâtel.
  • Allow students and researchers with an interest in these disciplines, at either Faculty, to expand their areas of expertise through interdisciplinary cooperation.

The CIHDDR regularly brings together professors, researchers and students interested in Law History and Roman Law, allowing them to work on joint projects, and to share their progress on their own studies in these fields. The CIHDDR encourages all forms of national and international collaboration.
