Litigation in Roman Law, Hardback (May 2005)
Most accounts of how the classical Romans sued each other tend to show the opponents willingly cooperating under the guidance of a magistrate, until their case was ready for trial. This book paints a picture of litigation that is far less polite and far less orderly. It examines how the rules of procedure coped with the typical pretrial delays.
New Outline of the Roman Civil Trial, Hardback (November 1997)
Roman litigation has long been a difficult subject for study, hampered by a lack of information concerning the practical operation of the civil courts. Using newly discovered evidence, Metzger presents a new interpretation of how civil trials in Classical Rome were commenced and brought to judgement.
Introduction to Roman Law, Paperback (February 1975)» View all books by Ernest Metzger
This book sketches the history of Roman private law from the Twelve Tables to modern times, and sets out the elements of the system. It does not attempt to summarize the whole law, but explains and evaluates its most characteristic and influential features.
