Post-classical Period of the Roman Law

By: Anavitarte, E. J.*

The post-classical period of the Roman law spans from the death of Alexander Severus in 235 AD, until the legal compilation ordered by Justiniano I in 533 AD, it coincides with the Dominate period of the Roman Empire.

At a general level, it responds to the social context of the Dominate, in which emperor became the only legitimate source of law, by means of the imperial edicts.

It is characterized by the disappearance of the classical era legal schools, because of the council of jurists gradually became permanent bureaucratic bodies; it is here when the main imperial constitutions were produced, which were compilations of law in a state centralized way.

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.
