These books are available for all the faculty and students of NCCU. The content of the books includes the fields of History of Law, Jurisprudence, Legal Sociology, Philosophy and Historiography. Among the various fields, the materials of History of Law are the richest. The books also include the valuable literature about legislations in different dynasties and the investigation on the Taiwan custom. Civil and Criminal precedents of Da Li Yuan, verdicts of Da Li Yuan and verdicts of Ping Chung Yuan are exclusively collected. Domestically and overseas, the center has a relatively complete collection of verdicts by the Da Li Yuan during the early Republic of China. However, the books about Jurisprudence and other fields need to be enhanced and the center will gradually enlarge the collection.


     The center arranges a variety of academic activities to promote the research on the fundamental jurisprudence and actively encourages the introspective disputations about the jurisprudence and other related fields. The activities include the conferences and lectures such as Historical Law Forum in Octobers, the Chengchi Forum for Legal History and the Chengchi Forum for Legal and Social Philosophy. Besides, related conferences are held on the emerging fields of the jurisprudential research to challenge and re-consider the different aspects of traditional jurisprudence. For example, in March, 2006, the center cooperated with the Institute of Law and Inter-discipline and the Master Program of Extended Education in the NCCU College of Law to hold an academic conference on Feminist Jurisprudence and aroused many responses and discussions. The center also periodically holds conferences which are centered on the papers by graduate students. The conferences not only provide chances for the graduate students of the Fundamental Jurisprudence to improve their academic research abilities, but also enhance the academic communication between our students and students who are interested in the fundamental jurisprudence from other groups or schools. This is very beneficial for the research atmosphere of the fundamental jurisprudence in every aspect.
