Detail from the sarcophagus of Roman jurist Valerio Petroniano (315-320)

A jurist is a person with expert knowledge of law; someone who studies, analyses and comments on law.[1][2] This person is usually a specialist legal scholar--not necessarily with a formal qualification in law or a legal practitioner, although in the USA the term "jurist" may be applied to a judge.[3] With reference to Roman law, a "jurist" (in English) is a jurisconsult (jurisconsulta).[]

The English term jurist is to be distinguished from similar terms in other European languages, which may be synonymous with legal professional, i.e. anyone with a professional law degree that qualifies for legal work.[4]
