Metzger on Civil Procedure in Roman Law

Ernest Metzger, University of Glasgow School of Law, has posted An Outline of Civil Procedure in Roman Law. Here is the abstract:
This is broad discussion of the key feature of Roman civil procedure, including sources, lawmaking, and rules. It covers the three principal models for procedure; special proceedings; appeals; magistrates; judges; and representation. A subsequent version of this article will appear as part of the Cambridge Companion to Roman Law.
