Studying Roman Law: Juno, It’s More Useful than You’d Think

That's not our pun; blame the Guardian's headline writer.  The story includes the following quote from a former Latham & Watkins partner: “As a lawyer who practised in international, multi-jurisdictional litigation, I have seen first-hand how Roman law concepts are woven like a thread into fundamental aspects of cases I have been involved in, both as a matter of the private and public international law.”  Something for law-school based legal historians to keep in mind as our institutions implement the ABA's new, assessment-based accreditation standards.
