Actions in Roman Law

By: Anavitarte, E. J.*

In Roman law, the action was configured as the procedural link between the administration of justice and the people, that is, the action was the only way in which the person got the administration of justice so that it could resolve their claims. This was one of the innovations of Roman law, and the concept of action as a form of litis has endured to this day.

For the Romans, more than a set of objective norms that created the law and were then applied to specific cases by the judges, there was a set of actions created to protect rights and that were put in place creating the objective right, because the tradition of legal codification would be something that would appear until Roman legal science was already well-developed.

Hence, the importance of actions in Roman law, since action was intrinsically synonymous with law, rights were not established, actions were established, assuming that the action implies the subjective right.

It is a long established fact that a reader will be distracted by the readable content of a page when looking at its layout. The point of using Lorem Ipsum is that it has a more-or-less normal distribution of letters, as opposed to using 'Content here, content here', making it look like readable English.
