M. Römeris’s constant endeavour and experience were gained from his studies in the various universities of different countries. Presiding over eminent experts and established professors-educationalists of his day aided in M. Römeris’s mastery of pedagogics. One of the most fundamental academic provisions of M. Römeris was that the relations between university professors and students had to be built on mutual respect and reliance. In his belief, the professor is obligated to earn the respect and the fondness of students through his valuable work, both as a scholar and as a human being. M. Römeris rendered this exclusive consideration in the study process during his lectures. In his belief, a lively speech could never be replaced by books. Even having given lectures for the same course of Constitutional Law for years, M. Römeris used to prepare for the lectures very thoroughly, constantly, and improved and updated them. His lectures were thorough and widely and deeply analysed problems. However, M. Römeris also envisaged some imperfections in his lectures because of their unilateral nature and the passivity of the audience. One of the means to partially counterbalance the imperfections mentioned by M. Römeris held that the students should endeavour to make abstracts of the lectures as well as other study forms based on discretionary student work. He applied an original colloquium system that would let him to not only get to know the students but also to allow the students to repeat the material. As for the students’ discretionary work he required the students to get acquainted with the texts of the constitutions as well as his recommended Lithuanian and foreign literature. Even after passing an exam, the professor used to make an extra tutorial in which the texts of the constitutions were analysed applying the knowledge gained during the course. In the sphere of study, M. Römeris constantly emphasized the principle of impartiality. This provision would become especially tender when related with the study of constitutional law, as historically on occasions, the political powers tried to use the constituion’s postulates while each arguing their own beliefs.
