Résumé

Natural law became the dominant form of moral and political philosophy in the Enlightenment. This was largely because the law of nature and nations was introduced as a subject in most universities, either in the philosophy or in the law faculty, as well as in other educational institutions in Protestant Europe, and, after some delay, also in Catholic regions as well as overseas. The paper provides an overview of natural law as an academic discipline in the old Helvetic confederation and in the allied republic of Geneva. The focus is on little-known professors, their published texts as well as lecture notes which have been kept in Swiss archives.
