Summary/Abstract: Professor Đorđe Tasić, Ph.D., one of the most prominent professors at the Faculty of Law in Belgrade in the period between the two world wars, has left behind him numerous and lasting works related to various areas of law -- legal theory, jurisprudence, constitutional law, administrative law, sociology of law. However, his most outstanding works were within the theory of state and law. The authors who have studied his work unanimously agree that his 'Introduction to Law' (Encyclopedia of Law) is his most prominent work on the theory of law, where Tasic departs from legal traditionalism and dogmatism found in earlier works by other text-writers dealing with legal theory. He also introduced and shaped a new, modern method in comparative law and sociology. In order to briefly outline Tasic's originality in conceiving this programme and the application of modern, comparative sociological method in research and the writing of this and other works of his, we have cited the Encyclopedia of Law programmes by his predecessors, such as Gligorije Giga Gersic, Cedomilj Mijatovic and Teodor Taranovski, who, regrettably, have not been written about at all or very rarely, but who formed an important basis for the improvement of the theory of state and law, as well as for Tasic's originality and modernism.
