Roman Law

Course Description
This course is an introduction to Roman law in the classical period.  It focuses primarily on private law of Rome, but, to the extent time permits, it may include some brief discussion of criminal law and international law.  The course is primarily divided into three parts.  The first part will discuss the history of Roman legal institutions, the sources of law, and litigation procedure.  The second will survey Roman private law of persons, property, family law, successions, contracts, and delicts.  The third will briefly highlight the relevance of Roman law today, including its historical significance as the foundation of much of modern private law and attempts to use Roman law to solve present day problems.
