This one unit course will offer an introduction to Roman law focused on Roman legal institutions and legal concepts in private and public law. A study of Roman law is valuable both because of its influence on civil and common law systems and for the comparison it offers to Anglo-American Common Law (i.e. Ownership and Possession, Torts, Contracts, Intellectual Property, Legal Status of Citizen and Aliens). Readings will be drawn from a mix of primary and secondary sources. No knowledge of Roman law, Roman history, or Latin and ancient Greek is assumed nor required.
Attendance at the first two weeks of class sessions is mandatory for all currently enrolled and waitlisted students; any currently enrolled or waitlisted students who are not present during the first two weeks of class (without prior permission of the instructor) may be dropped without notice. The instructor can continue to take attendance throughout the add/drop period and anyone who moves off the waitlist into the class must continue to attend or have prior permission of the instructor in order not to risk being dropped without notice.
Exam Notes: (P) Final paper
