François Le Douaren, French jurist of the sixteenth century, is one of the greatest representatives of the legal humanism. In his books (four volumes in folio for his opera omnia), he applies a systematic method, which criticizes the structure of the Corpus Juris Civilis and breaks with the scholastic method of the medieval jurisprudence.
