This chapter introduces the main subject of this book — the Roman civil trial conducted before a single judge, and the judge himself. The judge is considered to be an important subject in an outline of the civil trial, as his duties and responsibilities determine much of the trial's structure. The chapter briefly examines three matters relating to the judge: appointment, adjournment, and judgement. It also discusses the institutions of intertium and diem diffindre.
