Your opinion on Lex Iunia: The court, sentencing and appeals

Postby Quintus Furius Camillus » Mon Aug 08, 2016 9:33 am

SALVETE!

A few moons ago the Senate in its esteemed judgement passed this law - viewtopic.php?f=4&t=566

Now this law is not yet enforced as it must pass the Comitia Tributa. This is due to happen presently (viewtopic.php?f=3&t=850).

This law sets the ground rules for an internal dispute resolution system within the Roman Republic. As scholars of law I would be very interested to hear your opinion on this proposal as it goes before the people for ratification.

VALETE!

Camille,

If you have an issue with this lex, please bring it to the attention of the tribunes (myself or Audens) or post it in the Curia.

Please be wary of debates regarding the law making in my collegium - this is an interest group. I do not discourage it, but please be mindful.

In my experience in law, I find it more than reasonable. Both in Roman and current law.

I've actually been working on a proposed revision to that very law. I think it's fine a principle, but need to just be cleaned up a bit in formatting and some matters made more clear.

Agreed. It seems to me some offences are put to the wrong categories too.
In my opinion, the format of that law doesn't look quite formal, also lack of some necessary legal terminology.

:shock: May I remind the citizens, if there is serious concern, please contact either myself or my co-tribune. You may also contact any of the Senators. (:

Valete!

Longina S.P.D.

I actually addressed this in the Comitia Tributa, which I figured to be a valid forum to address such matters.

Vale.

Curio Sal.

I would have to say that Comitia Tributa would be appropriate, as it's currently on the docket for approval by the CT.

Valete Bene!

Yes, I am in agreement with Curio. The T.C. would be the best place. (:

I believe legislative debate is not only appropriate but should be encouraged in this Collegium. This IS the special interest group concerning roman law after all. From debates here we of the Senate might get great insights on how to legislate better. I hope to see more people like Ap. Helenus helping in making our laws better! May they be honored in our laws as Helenus has been in Lex Iunia Fabia. And I commend Quaestor Camillus for bringing this subject up here.

Sal.

I must strongly agree with this opinion. This Collegium should discuss past Roman law and use this knowledge to construct our present operating procedures. Like all things in the republic, the past should meet the present in this community.
