The Sabinian school was one of the two important schools of Law in Rome during the 1st and 2nd centuries CE.
Sabinian views were based on the teachings of Gaius Ateius Capito, Sabinus' instructor and an adherent of conservatism in the reign of Augustus (27 BCE–14 CE). Among the few characteristics discernible in the attitude of the Sabinians was a legal conservatism reflecting their founder. In opposition to the Sabinians was the Proculeian school. A rivalry between the schools lasted well into the 2nd century, when they were united.
