  1. BERNARD KEITH VETTER says:

    I have never seen a workshop or conference with the representation of a trial before the praetor, and/or a “trial” under the cognitio extraordinario. This to me would be extremely interesting, and invaluable in a course on Roman Law if it were filmed for use. It’s one thing to read about the procedure in a “trial,” but quite another for the student to view a mock trial. I sincerely hope someone will pick up on this, or let me know if a film of this nature is out there somewhere for use in class.
