The author presents Genesis, the ways and aims of legal education in Hungarian uni-versities, with a special focus on the Faculty of Law in Trnava, which was establishedin January 1667 (now Eötvös Loránd University in Budapest). The tradition of legaleducation has common European roots and is connected with the medieval foundationof universities in Bologna, where the priority was given to Roman law education.Due to the process of specialization and new tendencies in teaching in West Euro-pean universities, the Hungarian universities were also modernized and enlarged. Theexceptional position in education was dedicated to Roman and canonical law, but inthe Kingdom of Hungary domestic national law was also taught – a practice that hasexisted at the Faculty of Law in Trnava from its very beginnings.
