Product Description
If your kids enjoyed Hammurabi's Code for Rulers, you'll want to check out these Court Cases from the Code of Justinian.

Using 12 original cases, this activity leads students to become judges in the Byzantine Empire and use the Code of Justinian to render judgement in their court of law.

This fun assignment leads the students to read the code itself and provide interpretations and rulings while quoting the ancient law. It's always a student favorite!

Each case can be interpreted and ruled upon in various ways, so it's easy to pick a case for the students to act out (as I do in my own classroom). Also, I have edited and provided the Code of Justinian itself in a separate file, so there's no need to use the internet in class.

Note: if you have used my Hammurabi Code for Rulers assignment, the Code of Justinian is more challenging in that there are 12 cases and not 5, multiple interpretations are the norm, and the cases themselves are longer and tell a realistic story.
