 In this chapter I try to define who was a jurist in the Late Republic arguing that, among others, legal representatives and the staff of the magistrates had considerable legal knowledge. Some of these lesser known jurists are presented and I explain why these jurists are for the most part not included in modern manuals and why they should be taken into account.
