This course introduces the Roman legal system, and more generally the process and history of legal thinking as it was first developed by the Romans. The course concentrates on the Roman law that concerns wrongs done by one person to another, as a result of which the victim can sue the wrongdoer for damages; in Roman law these are called "delicts" (similar to our torts). Teaching is mainly by the case law method used in law schools. The course is graded on the basis of a midterm examination, a term paper, and a final exam.
