ROMAN LAW IN THE ERA OF JULIUS CAESAR

 

This gathering was held on the same date on which in 44 BC the Roman politician and military general Julius Caesar was murdered by his political opponents in the Senate house; therefore the topic was connected to the development of Roman law during that period. Asst. prof. Stoyan Ivanov started the meeting with a brief introduction to the socio-political situation in Rome during the mid-I century BC. Third-year student Tihomir Rachev presented a report on organized crime during that period and the legal means to fight against it. A thorough analysis was made on matters such as extortion, piracy and election frauds. At the end of the meeting third-year student Nikolay Nedyalkov presented an engaging report on the life and works of the notorious lawyer and politician Marcus Tullius Cicero.
