Roman Law & Society

HIS 558

Info tab content
Through its governmental institutions, the Roman state developed one of the first complex systems of civil law and formal adjudication in which the law was interpreted and applied. It is this systemic law that lies at the basis of most European and Common law jurisdictions today. The seminar places emphasis on understanding the developed structure of the Roman civil law, the development of its legal principles and arguments, and with how the law was applied in daily life.
