IusRomanum has been initiated with the purpose to create a forum for scholarly discussion of all
aspects of Roman Law. Possible topics include the history of Roman Law from the Twelve Tables to Justinianís
codes as well as its continued presence in the early Middle Ages, its renaissance in 12th century
Bologna, the development of the Ius Commune and the importance of Roman Law for the
understanding of modern legal systems and the formation of European Private Law. The use of
modern electronic resources for research in related fields may be a subject as well.
The list is open to everyone interested in the discussion of questions connected to Roman Law.
Jurists and historians are invited to take part. The participation of persons from a large variety
of professional backgrounds will add to the listís value.
