dc.description.abstractThe intention of this Senior Independent Project is to compare different legal systems, and thereby to discover, admittedly on a limited scale, the values and mores espoused by selected groups of people. Here under consideration will be the legal systems of three different Western societies, each of which represents an important period in the development of modern Western jurisprudence: Roman law during the reign of Emperor Justinian, the English Common system during the age of Henry of Bracton, and England's legal tradition during the time of William Blackstone. By examining the intentions of laws, and the motivating factors behind their formulation, a means is provided by which to ascertain the aspirations various peoples were striving to realize.en_US
