Exam in Legal and Constitutional History

The exam in Legal and Constitutional History is an oral exam. Students who started studying law after the winter term 2011/12 may only take the exam after having successfully completed the University’s study entry period (StEOP).

The contents of the exam include both constitutional history and the history of private law. The history of criminal law is not part of the exam.

Exam requirements

Students must have successfully completed the study entry period (StEOP), that is the Introductory Exam (“Einführung in die Rechtswissenschaften”) and the StEOP Practical Exercise in either Ancient Roman Law or Legal and Constitutional History (StEOP-PÜ Romanistische Fundamente or StEOP-PÜ aus Rechts- und Verfassungsgeschichte).

Exam Registration and Deregistration

Students may register for the oral exam in Legal and Constitutional History through U:SPACE (https://uspace.univie.ac.at). After registering, students are notified online to see their individual exam date. The Department for Legal and Constitutional History itself is not in charge of allocating exam dates, and therefore cannot change them individually.

Students may deregister until one day before their oral exam takes place by sending an e-mail with their personals (name, examiner, examination date) to the Institute’s secretariat. For technical reasons, students will not receive an e-mail to confirm that their deregistration has been successful.
