Companion to Justinian's Institutes
Written to accompany the Birks and McLeod translation of "Justinian's Institutes", this book takes up all the principal subjects in the "Institutes" and gives a description of the law on each subject, including chapters on: the sources of law; the law of persons; the law of property; the law of succession; the law of obligations; the law of actions; and criminal trials. Each chapter gives comprehensive guidance on ancient and modern sources and contains a bibliography for further reading. The technical legal vocabulary used in both books is set out in detail, and tables of authorities are included. The book is suitable as a student textbook commenting on a source fundamental to the study of Roman Law.
