Law and Rhetoric in the School Controversies
Author: Tessa G. Leesen
Gaius Meets Cicero. Law and Rhetoric in the School Controversies sheds new light on a much debated issue in the field of Roman law, i.e. the so-called 'school controversies' between the Sabinians and the Proculians.

For this purpose, they made use of rhetoric and of the argumentative theory of topoi as described in Cicero's Topica.
