The Obligations in Roman Law

By: Anavitarte, E. J.*

By obligations, we understand all those rights that a person had, to demand from another, the fulfillment of an action or the payment of a thing. For what could also be called, credit rights.

This concept of legal enforceability, of the rights that one has over other people, is one of the innovations of Roman law, at least with respect to modern Western law.

These obligations represented a link between the creditor and the debtor, which the law recognized through legal actions. Hence, the word 'obligation' comes from the Latin obligatio , which is translated as "to bind", ─ which clearly defines its legal nature─.

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.
