FCIL-SIS Program: Roman Interest Law Group presents 'F.H. Blume's Annotated Justinian Code: A Western Classic'

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Why did Wyoming State Court Justice Fred Blume work in his spare time to produce an annotated English translation of the Code of Justinian? Why did other common law lawyers and jurists, including Roscoe Pound and Oliver Wendell Holmes, write on Roman law? Why did Justice Stevens cite Roman law in a 2005 opinion? What other Roman law influences lurk in American law? Timothy Kearley, Director of the Law Library & Professor of Law, University of Wyoming College of Law, will introduce the Code of Justinian and share the story of Justice Blume's work and the creation of the Annotated Justinian Code website. Lucia Diamond, librarian for The Robbins Collection at the University of California, Berkeley, will highlight other Roman law influences in the U.S.
