Scholars of law and the history of law explore parallels between English law and Roman law, focusing in turn on external historical aspects and substantive aspects. The topics include law and equity since Justinian, the equity of the common law courts, arbitrary chancellors and the problem of predictability, equity's connivance in the evasion of legal formalities, whether Roman law was more consistent than English law, and liability of a principal for accidental losses suffered by his agent. The eight papers are from a December 2011 conference in Leiden, The Netherlands.
