From: Michael Furmston

Subject: Obligations in the common law

 

During my 4 years at Oxford from 1953 to 1957 I studied 4 Roman law papers and could have done 5 if I had chosen the delicts option. Lawyers of my generation learned classification from Gaius so the use of obligations is perfectly natural.

Peter Birks was not anymore Roman trained than the rest of us. He just specialised in teaching Roman Law for many years.
