Workshop: Family Law(s) Under the Roman Empire 

30 November-1 December 2017

The University of Edinburgh, in conjunction with Tel Aviv University, will be hosting an international workshop of scholars working on legal history of the late antique Roman Empire, in one of the main legal traditions, namely Roman law, Greek legal traditions, Christian legal traditions, and Halakha, or the interaction between them, and focusing on marriage and family law. We are inviting advanced PhD students to participate in the workshop. 

Workshop: The Dawn of Roman Law

6-8 December 2017 

This is a closed conference with invited speakers. We intend to draw our speakers from a range of disciplines including Roman law, Roman archaeology, Etruscan studies, Greek law, Greek archaeology and anthropology. Scholars will be hosted by the University of Edinburgh. We are currently in the the process of securing funding for this conference, but we ask that speakers also explore their own institutional funding. The proceeds will form a book, published under the auspices of the Edinburgh Roman Law Group.
