CLAS-C 308  Roman Law
Sections 26693, 26694 (Honors section) / Bannon

NOTE: Both sections Intensive Writing. This course introduces the
Roman legal system, and more generally the process and history of
legal thinking. It focuses on the Roman law of delict, that is,
wrongful damage to private property (roughly equivalent to the
modern law of torts), but covers the main areas of Roman law more
generally. Studying law allows us to investigate Roman ideas about
personal safety and personal space, product liability and employment
ethics. We will explore the topic through the “case law” method,
analyzing Roman legal cases. Modern legal cases will also be brought
in for comparison.  (A&H, CSA)
