International Roman Law Moot

Third IRLM (2010)

In March 2010, the third International Roman Law Moot Court Competition and Colloquium was organised by the Institute Mohamed Ali for the Research of the Eastern Tradition and the Municipality of Philippi at the Imaret of Kavala and in the Roman forum of Philippi.

This libellus was based on a commodity swap agreement that English students observed was very similar to Westdeutsche Landesbank Girozentrale v Islington LBC [1996] AC 669. This complex modern sort of contract was of course difficult to fit into the Roman Law structure: a challenge for students but one that allowed a variety of ideas and constructions from different teams in the competition. There was a further point on iniuria; while this fitted much more comfortably into Roman law, the ingenuity of argument led to consideration of sources as far removed as Biblical directions to slave owners and the Roman treatment of 2nd Century BC theatre actors.
