In the period between 1884 and 1885 he was a third-year student of the Law Department. His education at this University coincided with the period of architectonic development of the educational centre in Wrocław, as well as the development of research on legal issues. Szeptycki studied in Wrocław till 1886 and after that he continued his studies in Kraków. Studying in Wrocław was a necessary condition for him to receive his father’s blessing for his joining the order of Basilians. In Wrocław the young Szeptycki was very active both on the academic and social arena. He also attended Theology and Slavonic studies lectures. He soon became member of the catholic Societas Hosiana Society, Upper Silesian Society and Literary Slavonic Society.
