A New Outline of the Roman Civil Trial

Ernest Metzger

Oxford University Press

This chapter argues that the rules for dividing the day ensure that a case, once put into a judge's hands, remains under his supervision until judgement. It describes his mandate in such a way that he will know clearly whether he has crossed a line and incurred liability. The chapter provides a summary of the conclusions on adjournment. It includes the proposition that the one-day rule did not exist. The remainder of the chapter examines adjournment in practice in Rome, other aspects of adjournment, subordination, and liability.

Keywords:   liability, subordination, Rome, adjournment in practice, conclusions, aspects of adjournment, judge
