Civil law and legal proceedings, consumer protection law – from A to Z
Civil law is part of our daily life: from civil nuisance to compensation for damages, from rescission of a contract to guarantees. Not surprising most disputes are therefore dealt with in civil proceedings.
Civil law systems are found on all continents and are the most important in the countries of the first world. They are based on concepts, categories, and rules derived from Roman law, with some influence of canon law, sometimes largely supplemented or modified by local custom or culture. The civil law tradition promotes cooperation between human beings. In their technical, narrow sense, the words civil law describe the law that pertains to persons, things, and relationships that develop among them, excluding not only criminal law but also commercial law, labor law, etc. Codification took place in most civil law countries, with the French Code civil, the Austrian ABGB and the German BGB being the most influential civil codes.
For example, consumer protection rights is one of these aspects fo civil law we experience every day. Buying a train ticket or a flat, signing up with a mobile phone provider or a credit card, and ordering a book on Amazon are just a few examples. Unfortunately not all these transactions turn out as planned. This is when we come in. Years of experience with civil and consumer protection law will be on your side.
