Unwritten law referred to custom in Roman times, although by the early modern period in Europe, customs were accepted as written law in many places. Written law for the Romans was divided into six categories: acts(leges), resolutions or plebeian statutes(plebiscita), senate resolutions (senatus consulta), imperial laws or constitutions (constitutiones principium), magistrates' edicts (edicta), and jurists' responses or interpretations (responsa prudentium).Contradictions in the laws occurred because these numerous sources were neither coordinated nor routinely collected. The early attempts to organize Roman law included theInstitutes of Gaius in the second century c.e. and theTheodosian Code under Emperor Theodosius II in 438 c.e., but these were incomplete. The final compilation of theCorpus Juris Civilis under Justini...

When Roman rule over Europe came to an end, Roman law was largely–though not completely–forgotten. (Ancient Rome, Compton’s 96) The earliest code of Roman Law was the Law of the Twelve Tables.
