Commenting on the reluctance of students, of the time, to read Roman Law in the original Latin, and the reason why he wrote this book, R.W.Lee writes in the Preface:-

  • Roman Law is one of the great things which have happened in the world. It is part of a liberal education to know something about it.
  • Roman Law is an introduction to the study of the science of Law, or, as we call it, Jurisprudence. For many centuries the Science of Law was Roman Law. If in modern times it has widened its outlook and improved its method its debt to Roman Law remains unquestioned.
  • Roman Law is a key to the terminology and, to a great extent, to the substance of foreign systems.
  • Roman Law enlarges the mind. Burke has well said that the science of law does more to stregthen the mind than to liberalize it. The study of Roman Law liberalizes te mind by expanding the range of vision.
      June 1944
