Abstract

The research derives from the author's report to an interdisciplinary conference on conflict of interest. The analysis starts from a general theory perspective to demonstrate the inadequacy of the legal terminology to identify the conflict of interest in a satisfactory manner. Then the author examines the topic in Roman law, and particularly the possibility of finding these legal objectives in the plebiscitum Claudianum, dating from third century BC. This plebiscitum, erroneously linked to the de repetundis legislation, had the only purpose of prohibiting senators from carrying out maritime trade, an activity considered contrary to the decor of Roman senators. Therefore the author concludes that the considered provision was completely different from the discipline of conflict of interest as it is considered in modern law.
