to the homepage for the Roman Law branch of the Law-related Internet Project at the University of Saarbr?cken! These pages are dedicated to Roman Law: the legal system invented by the Romans more than 2000 years ago, which - having undergone the process of decay, revival, transformation and reinterpretation innumerable times - continues to influence legal thinking and legal practice to our days.
This text, published in 1861, explores the history of law by looking at the early Roman legal system.
About 250 articles on Roman law of varying length originally published in 1875, covering topics such as civil rights, codes and procedures, contracts and torts, officers and magistrates, and specific laws.
