Better known for his contributions to philosophy, metaphysics and mathematics, as co-discoverer along with Isaac Newton of calculus, Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz was also an attorney, diplomat, state official and judge of the Mainz Court of Appeals. The New Method of Learning and Teaching Jurisprudence is his prescription for a curriculum of study for lawyers and as such is an important indicator of the origins of legal education in the late renaissance year of 1667, when John Milton published Paradise Lost. Already translated into German and French, this is the first unabridged translation of the 1667 Frankfurt edition in a modern language, a new direct translation of the Latin text with notes by Carmelo Massimo de Iuliis (Department of Public and Private Economy Law, Universita Cattolica del Sacro Cuore, Milano). The translation is enhanced by De Iuliis' introduction, which offers a biographical sketch of Leibniz, an overview of the reception of his ideas and a discussion of his views on the philosophical concepts of logic and rhetoric as applied to the study of jurisprudence and the systematic reconstruction of legal systems. CARMELO MASSIMO DE IULIIS [b. 1960], teaches company law at the Universita Cattolica del Sacro Cuore, Milano. In 2014 he edited and commented on the first Italian unabridged translation of the (1666) De Casibus Perplexis in Iure (Perplexed Cases in Law), by Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz for his doctoral dissertation. He is the author of several publications on company and banking law. GOTTFRIED WILHELM LEIBNIZ [1646-1716] wrote seve.
