After the fall of the Western Roman Empire the world continued to see the legacy of Greek and Roman influences. The Roman Empire brought civilization to people through the acculturation of Greek ideas and concepts. Rome’s legacy is evident today in laws and government that still create and inspire legal practices in the modern world based upon the “The Twelve Tables”. The Twelve Tables apply equality to all members of society just as today’s society is protected by current laws and Constitution. For example one human right that we all know is the premise, “One is innocent until proven guilty”. The importance of law in our modern Government is represented by legislative bodies protecting human rights which were built and based upon Roman models.
