Quick Overview

Jane F. Gardner describes how Roman law was based on the familia, a legal unit consisting of a male head and his legitimate descendants in the male line. Real Roman families, however, often did not fit this pattern. How did they exploit the rules to suit their own purposes, and how, under the influences of various social and demographic factors, were the rules themselves changed?
