This introductory chapter begins with a brief description of the main argument of the book, namely that forensic practice and what happened in the courtrooms, set alongside other broader socio-legal norms and practices, are essential components in aiding the understanding of how ‘law’ functioned in the later Roman Empire. An overview of the three parts of the book is presented.
