As for the law studies it is a known fact that there was at least a highly considered jurisprudence professor already in 1309, his name was Giambellino da Parabiago.

The Municipality exerted itself to give jurisprudence, humanities and medicine teachers to Treviso, the same thing happened in other medieval towns.

From 1313 and to 1314 Treviso concentrated its efforts to build a small university by the help of a canon law professor, hired as full professor, another one hired as temporary teacher and the third had to teach canon law and the fourth one medicine.
