New Book Symposium - Oxford Handbook of Roman Law and Society

6 December 2016

Time: 4:00 - 7:00pm
Venue: Room 313, Third Floor, Law Building, Queen Mary University of London, Mile End Road, E1 4NS United Kingdom

A new book symposium organised by the Centre for Law and Society in a Global Context (CLSGC) for the Oxford Handbook of Roman Law and Society.

About the book

The Oxford Handbook of Roman Law and Society surveys the landscape of contemporary research and charts principal directions of future inquiry. More than a history of doctrine or an account of jurisprudence, the Handbook brings to bear upon Roman legal study the full range of intellectual resources of contemporary legal history, from comparison to popular constitutionalism, from international private law to law and society, thereby setting itself apart from other volumes as a unique contribution to scholarship on its subject.

The Handbook brings the study of Roman law into closer alignment and dialogue with historical, sociological, and anthropological research into law in other periods. It will therefore be of value not only to ancient historians and legal historians already focused on the ancient world, but to historians of all periods interested in law and its complex and multifaceted relationship to society.

Chair: Dr Maks Del Mar (Queen Mary).

Panel I: Editors’ Vision, 4-5pm

Panel II: Commentary, 5-6pm

Discussion - 6-6.30pm
