The Interdictum in Roman Law

By: Anavitarte, E. J.*

Interdicts are orders issued by the praetor, by virtue of his imperium, to solve a particular legal situation that was not the product of an infraction of the law, but could─if it continued─become so, for which the praetor I anticipated avoiding it.

Thus, the edicts never resulted in the awarding of a right, but rather in the limitation of someone's freedom to act in a certain way, hence its name: interdictum (prohibit).

And although the praetor could autonomously configure the cases in which he would act to impose an injunction, in general they dealt with the preservation of public order, or protected assets that could be affected pending trial.

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.
