Does the word law mean anything to you?
Laws and decrees, international treaties aplenty, thousands of court rulings… But this abundance of law relies on a few major principles swiftly encapsulated in a few sentences, those " old sayings ".
Don’t skip out on those expressions – some of them in Latin- do follow the lead into this surprising mix of law, history, morals and even at times some kind of poetry.
As you wander around, you will come across mottos that will sound familiar while others may just be quite baffling.
Find out what they mean and the role they’ve been playing in building up our law!

This exhibition has been designed by the "Service Recherche et Pilotage" (Research Department) and by
the Cultural Centre as part of the Toulouse Capitole University programme entitled "Partage des savoirs").

PhD students in Public Law, in charge of the Toulouse Capitole University CST ( Culture- Science- Technique) mission.

Scientific Supervision:
Hélène HOEPFFNER, Professor in Public Law
Jacques KRYNEN, Professor in Law History
