Celebrating the Civil Code

CK - Washington.   Several years after its precursor, the Code de Rohan, entered into force in then French-occupied Malta with its hybrid legal system, the famous Code Civil became the law of the land in France and an influence in other nations. At the time, Germany was splintered into numerous legal systems with a variety of codifications of the law. The Saarland University celebrated the introduction of the French code 200 years ago with a special event on November 26, 2004.
