The Rule of Law in Ancient Rome - 08-09/02/2016, Sydney (Australia)


The Department of Classics and Ancient History, along with the Australasian Roman Law Network is delighted to announce our inaugural symposium on the rule of law in ancient Rome. The rule of law is an important concept in modern liberal democratic traditions. The idea that the relationship between sovereign power and the individual should be regulated by the law is fundamental to modern understandings of the authority of the nation state. At times of crisis, the preservation, abnegation or setting aside of the rule of law becomes a litmus test of the health of a democracy. For centuries, scholars have looked to the ancient world – especially the legal and democratic traditions of Greece and Rome – in order to understand the development of the concept of the rule of law.
