Caesar also promulgated several points of practical legislation: 1) He changed the calendar,  reforming it into the Julian calendar; 2) he permitted the urban tribunes to attack street gangs.  Collegia were made illegal, but exempted Jews due to their assistance to him when he was in  Alexandria; 3) in urban courts, the jury was divided equally between  equites  and senators; 4) he  began to break the barriers in the relations between Rome and the provinces. Caesar was liberal  with grants of Roman citizenship, bestowing it of Cisalpine Gaul, the provincial urban centers, as  well as certain individuals, and elevated other provincial cities to Latin citizen rights status. It  was the first wholesale extension of citizenship. As well, he began appointing outsiders to the  Senate; 5) He planned Caesarian colonies, or the roots of cities in less Romanized areas such as  Southern Gaul, Iberia, Africa, and Asia Minor. In 44 BCE there were 35 legions under arms.
