A part of the Roman identity was their system of law. While the Roman civilization was not the first (nor the last, for that matter) to have written laws, it was one of the first societies that had such a complex and well-structured legal system that did not depend completely on the whims of one ruler - not even during the time of the Caesars.

In keeping with this spirit, the Societas Via Romana strives for clarity, simplicity and accessibility in its regulations and inner workings. Here you will find all information about our administration and our internal rules.

For most of its first five years, the Societas Via Romana had a magistratuus patterned after that of the Roman Republic. As the Societas matured into a less-political entity, these offices became increasingly harder to fill. In AUC 2758 (mid-2005 CE), a simplification of the Society's structure, known as the Concilium Reforms, eliminated the magistratuus per se, replacing it with a panel of three to seven officers, now called Curatores. These serve as a board of directors, and are elected for a two-year term.
