The Law of Twelve Tables (451-450 SM)Dipercaya sebagai legislasi tertulis pertama di yang mendasari Roman Law.Dirumuskan oleh 10 commissioners (decemvirs) atas desakan kelompok plebeian yang sering mendapatkan perlakuan sewenang-wenang Patrician. Dibuat dari perunggu, diletakan di ruang terbuka (forum) 390 SM musnah saat Roma dijarah bangsa Gallia.Usaha penyusunan kembali dimungkinkan berkat adanya kutipan-kutipan yang dibuat Cicero yang diambil dari Digesten (Salah satu jilid kodifikasi Justinianus) Israel Drapkin has noted that the Twelve Tables (449 BCE) marked a transition from private retribution to state adjudication. Though during this period, there was still no clear boundary between public and private law, criminal matters were regulated in accordance with the eighth and ninth tables, which Drapkin, suggests was the embryonic form of the public law/criminal law divide. (Israel Drapkin M D, Crime and Punishment in the Ancient World (Lexington Books 1989) 232).
