We highlight the scientific research activity carried out by the teaching staff involved in the elaboration of the Romanian Encyclopaedia. We mention that this project, carried out in collaboration with the Romanian Academy of Law Research Andrei Radulescu, created the framework of a valuable scientific collaboration through the collaboration between the teaching staff of the Faculty of Law and didactic staff from other educational institutions or important personalities of life legal.
Center for Legal Research coordinated by Prof.univ.dr. Nicolae Voiculescu has always constituted a way of collective involvement of the Faculty of Law teachers, often being the host of events occasioned by the presence of personalities from fields of interest to lawyers.
