After the Western Roman Empire fell, the world was still seeing the legacy of Greek and Roman influences. Civilization was brought to people by the Roman Empire through Greek ideas and concepts. Rome’s legacy is still shown in today’s laws and government, which still creates legal practices in the modern world based on “The Twelve Tables”. The Twelve Tables was the earliest code of law created by the Roman Empire.
The Twelve Tables stated the rights and duties of a Roman citizen. In today’s society, The Twelve Tables are just in a different form. For example, instead of The Twelve Tables, we have the United States Constitution, which tells all citizens their rights, just like the Twelve Tables.
