EEX

Lat. In the Roman law. Law; a law; the law. This term was often used as the synonym of jus, in the sense of a rule of civil conduct authoritatively prescribed for the government of the actions of the members of an organized jural society. In a more limited and particular sense, it was a resolution adopted by the whole Ro- man “populus”‘ (patricians and plebians) in the comitia, on the motion of a magistrate of senatorial rank, as a consul, a pnetor, or a dictator. Such a statute frequently took the name of the proposer; as the lex Falcidia, lex Cornelia, etc.
