In C308 Roman Law, students learn about the Roman legal system and they practice of legal analysis. We use the ‘case law’ method, analyzing Roman legal cases to understand their logic and their response to social needs. This semester we focus on water rights and public resources, investigating how Romans regulated rivers and aqueducts. Studying law allows us to investigate Roman ideas about personal safety and personal space, economic decisions, and the environment.
