El Contexto Dogmático De La Par Condicio Creditorum En El Derecho Romano, Patricio Lazo

El Pretendido Efecto Retroactivo De La Condición Cumplida, Patricio Lazo

Patricio Lazo

The topic of this article is the study of Roman sources of law, to the extent that they determine whether the condition which has been fulfilled could have had, or no, a retroactive effect, since some of those sources answer “yes, there was such a retroactive effect”, while others simply deny it.
