The Lex or Roman Statutory Law

By: Anavitarte, E. J.*

For the Romans, the law is any legal manifestation the Roman people gave themselves, so in a broad sense we can speak of the law as any rule with universal legal force in the legal body of Roman law.

Thus, the edicts proclaimed by the emperors, or some senatorial consultants, could be called laws, but in a strict sense, the acts proffered by vote in the Roman elections at the proposal of a magistrate, with a special procedure, for its promulgation and discussion were called laws.

And it corresponds to the Latin lex or legis, which could be translated as binding or writing, the Law is undoubtedly one of the main contributions of Roman civilization to universal culture, and its use is a universal practice in the modern world.

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.
