oa Fundamina : A Journal of Legal History - Ulric Huber De Ratione Juris. Docendi & Discendi Diatribe per Modum. Dialogi, Margaret Hewett : book review
Ought a legal text always to be taught and studied in its complete and unabridged form, or would students sometimes benefit by the substitution of an abridgment, summary or compendium for the original text? If the latter is the case, what precisely are the benefits afforded by the use of compendia? Would the answers to these questions depend on whether the law students under instruction are beginners or at an advanced stage of their studies? These are questions of direct and immediate importance for both teachers and students of law, in every legal system and in every age.
