Other laws within the Twelve Tables were modified over time and, from the 3rd century BCE, they were steadily replaced by laws more relevant to the evolving Roman society and the dramatic expansion of the Republic. Law commonly refers to a system of rules created and enforced through social or governmental institutions to regulate behavior, with its precise definition a matter of longstanding debate.

    Roman law. As well as the constant rivalry between patricians and plebeians, the Republic is also known as a period in which the power of Rome reached the whole peninsula of Italy and Roman law was founded with the Law of the Twelve Tables in BC.
