Biography/Description

J. led an active life. He seems to have gotten his doctorate in utroque iure at Pavia where he taught for a brief period and then transferred to teaching at the university of Valence in the Dauphiné probably in 1520. His membership in the college of doctors and judges at Alessandria led to his being often consulted. He was called to the service of the duke of Savoy in 1527 and taught at the same time in the studio at Torino. He was called to a chair at Padova where he taught civil law from 1533 to 1543, when he had to stop teaching because of ill health. His works are very much in the style of the mos italicus, consilia, commentaries and repetitiones, and treatises. The Tractatus de potestate procuratoris (TUI 1584, t. 11.1) was not published until after his death (1st ed. Lyon 1552). One hundred fifty of his consilia were published in Frankfurt in 1608. Many of his repetitiones can be found in the eight-volume Repetitionum in varias iuris civilis leges (Lyon 1553).
