    Hey,

    I'm currently trying to decide upon an EPQ question to work on, I know for sure that it'll be law based and have been thinking about something to do with the Romans/Roman law and how it's influenced the UK.

    But with some research I haven't really found anything substantial to use for that question.

    If anyone has any ideas regarding roman law and England or any law EPQ questions in general I'd really appreciate it.

    Thanks in advance.

    I was going to do an EPQ in law (i still might ). I was going to discuss criminal and civil law and how they are more connected than people think.

    I know i was learning about gross negligent manslaughter in law today and i noticed how linked civil law was because the legal principal ex turpi causa . Have you thought about looking at all the Latin behind the law? That could be something to discuss.

    Yeah maybe, something along the lines of why we still use many of the terms today might be interesting.

    Yeah i mainly focussed on Nigerian, Malaysian and some Somalian Piracy with laws from how each country prosecutes- as it varies from 10yrs in jail to facing a firing squad. i looked at China Japan UK USA Marshall Islands Panama Germany Singapore Russia, and some others. I spoke about how piracy operates, the different types, how ships operate and how different laws apply under different circumstances- like where the ship is flagged or registered and what waters its in. I spoke about some case studies and potential solutions that are currently unfeasible and will be.
    I can talk about this for hours ahah
