Scholarship on Romani law, and in particular the "Gypsy court", has developed in
recent years. One recent study has offered a typology grounding the presence of a court
system in those Romani groups which speak "New Vlax" dialects of Romani and which
have a nomadic or semi-nomadic recent past. The present essay offers new research
testing this thesis. The group at issue indeed speaks a dialect of Romani linked to the
Romania-oriented dialect groups, but appears to lack a recent history of nomadism.
Other aspects of Romani law in the context of the particular Romani group at issue
are also discussed.
