Languages of publication



Already as a clerk at the Department of Education and National Enlightenment, professor Otakar Sommer significantly contributed towards the formation of the Faculty of Law at the Comenius University. Thereafter, he held the position of a professor of Roman Laws from 1921 till 1928. Thanks to his charismatic nature, he became a natural centre of the academia which elected him as the dean of faculty in 1923 and as chancellor of the Comenius University in 1926. Based on archive sources and memories of his contemporaries, this study attempts to analyze fundamental features of his activity in Bratislava, while the attention of the author is focused namely on the evaluation of the scientific message of Otakar Sommer for further development of the Faculty of Law at the Comenius University and the Slovak jurisprudence as such.
