About the Department
The department of history of the state, law and political law teachings was established as a part of the faculty of law in 1784. In 1784-1887 it was called the department of German and Austrian law. It was headed by professor K. Liske, who lectured the history of Austrian law; docent (later professor) F. Zrodlovskyi lectured the history of Roman law; docent G. Roshkovskyi lectured the philosophy of law. It was in 1887 when the department of Polish law was set up at the law faculty by a joint decision of the Rector’s Council and the Senate of the Lviv university (Academic Council). It was the second department on the territory of the Austrian province of Galicia and Lodomeria (first created in 1877 at the Yahelonian university in Krakow).
The head of the department became professor Osvald Baltser, a professor of Polish law, later professor A. Halban, professor P. Domkovskyi, who were the scientists of the European level. After the collapse of Austria-Hungary in the autumn of 1918, the Austrian teachers of the department of history of the state and law left the law faculty. During the Polish-Ukrainian war of 1918-1919 the department as well as the university didn’t work. After the restoration of work at Lviv university in the summer of 1920, professor Pshemyslav Domkovskyi headed the department of ancient Polish private law. In 1926, after the death of professor A. Halban he also headed the department of Western European law, temporarily. In 1933, after the death of professor O. Baltser, the department of Polish law (headed by professor O. Baltser) and the department of ancient Polish private law were joined into one department – department of History of polish government and law. It was headed by professor P. Domkovskyi. During the years of soviet power professor P. Domkovskyi remained the head of the department of general history of the state and law.
The students of those times highly appreciated the lectures of docent O. Nadraha and lecturers P. Ilkiv and L. Pauli who lectured Roman law. Having occupied Lviv in 1941, the Nazis closed down the university. On November 1, 1944 the university renewed its educational activity. The department of theory and history of the state and law was set up. Under this name the department functioned until 2008. Over the years the department was headed by professor P. Domkovskyi (1944-1946), professor P. Nedbailo (1946-1954), docent V. Kalynovych (1954-1960), professor V. Sokurenko (1960-1990), professor O. Tyshchyk (1990-1908).
In accordance with the decision of the Academic Council of Ivana Franko national university of Lviv and the rector’s order of April 10, 2008 the department of theory and history of the state and law was divided into the department of history of the state, law and political law teachings and the department of theory and philosophy of law.
