As a part and an important, even determinant resource in the complex process of national culture development, education has always been a topic addressed by the Romanian history researchers. Education has been given the greatest attention in partial monographs and monographs of branches of education up to syntheses and treatises because its evolution has been a part of the Romanians’ economic, social and political development. The present study brings into the attention of the historians an unpublished category of documents – study documents used or issued by the university or academic secretariats. The case study focuses on the Oradea Academy of Law students’ quantitative data processing mainly upon the Romanian period of the institution. The tables and graphs complete the picture of the students’ life on the west frontier of Great Romania while the analyses of the documents bring about new information in the study of the intellectual elite.
