M any of our basic ideas and systems came from Ancient Rome and several aspects of Roman Law and the Roman Constitution are around today, including regular elections, term limits, separation of powers, vetoes, and checks and balances. These concepts serve as foundations for today’s democratic governments. Ancient Rome’s legacy is still seen today in our western cultures, in such areas as religion, engineering, architecture, language, law, and government.

Who made the laws?
T here were many different ways that the laws were created. Primarily, official new laws were made through Roman Assemblies. Citizens that were members of assemblies would vote on these laws.
