About the Authors
  • Jolowicz's classic work traces the development of Roman Law historically from the earliest times until the age of Justinian. Private Law is treated at some length for the republican period, but for imperial times the emphasis is on constitutional law and the sources of law, together with the procedure and structure of the judicial system. There are also chapters on social conditions and on the general characteristics of classical and post-classical law.
