Civil Law Systems

Civil Law Systems

  • They have their origin in the Roman legal tradition.
  • Civil systems vary widely, both in procedure and substantive law, so conducting research on a particular nation's civil law system should include looking at that nation's specific system of law, but they do have some trademark characteristics.  
  • Nations with civil law systems have comprehensive, frequently updated legal codes. Most importantly, case law is a secondary source in these jurisdictions.
  • France and Germany are two examples of countries with a civil law system.
