The Roman World of Cicero's De Oratore

Oxford University Press

This chapter begins with a discussion of how the civil law is introduced into the dialogue. It outlines the civil procedures available in the time of Cicero's dialogue —procedures which had not changed significantly in Cicero's own day. It also presents a discussion of the legal experts (iuris periti) and the state of legal literature prior to Cicero's day, and then examines his presentation of actual cases.

Keywords:   civil litigation, iudicia publica, quaestiones perpetuae, Cicero, civil law
