In the ancient world, the Rome law is
the most complete and perfect law of the system. It is not only a tool for
maintaining and stabilizing imperial rule, but also the most outstanding contribution
of the Romans to human civilization. As an important human cultural heritage,
the Rome law is undoubtedly the most complete form of law based on private
ownership, which has a wide and far-reaching impact on the modern world,
especially western society, and it can be put forward in the following paragraphs.

Firstly, though the Rome law reflects
the reality of the Rome Empire, it has become the legal source and legal
forerunner of modern western law as well as the legislative basis of the continental
law system. The French civil code issued in March
21, 1804 adopts the structural system of “law ladder”, one of the
four legal documents in the Rome civil law, and defines three basic principles,
namely, absolute ownership, contractual freedom and fault liability. In this
way, together with the German civil code, it formed the two pillars and origin
of the continental law system together. European
continental law countries and many countries in South America have a close
relationship with the Rome law because of the French civil code.
