Civil law

Civil law regulates the legal relationships between individuals, in which neither party has an authoritative position, they are both equal. In such legal relationships the principle of the autonomy of the will applies. The latter is made subject to the limitations established by mandatory (compulsory) regulations. These relationships are also characterized by the optional legal rules; in principle, what the parties agree on applies, provided this is not contrary to the mandatory provisions, statutory provisions shall apply only if the parties haven’t agreed otherwise.

Civil law is divided into:

  • Law of obligations (Contract law, Tort law, unilateral legal transactions, restorative or reparative obligations),
  • Family law (regulating relations between spouses, cohabiting partners, the relationship between parents and children),
  • Law of inheritance (regulating the mode of transfer of assets after the death of the deceased to his heirs),
  • Property law (regulating the right to property and relationships between people in relation to property → eg. the right of ownership, liens, easements).
