Civil law, civilian law, or Roman law is a legal system originating in Europe, intellectualized within the framework of Roman law, the main feature of which is that its core principles are codified into a referable system which serves as the primary source of law. This can be contrasted with common law systems, the intellectual framework of which comes from judge-made decisional law, and gives precedential authority to prior court decisions, on the principle that it is unfair to treat similar facts differently on different occasions.


Historically, a civil law is the group of legal ideas and systems ultimately derived from the Corpus Juris Civilis, but heavily overlaid by Napoleonic, Germanic, canonical, feudal, and local practices,as well as doctrinal strains such as natural law, codification, and legal positivism.


Conceptually, civil law proceeds from abstractions, formulates general principles, and distinguishes substantive rules from procedural rules.It holds case law secondary and subordinate to statutory law. Civil law is often paired with the inquisitorial system, but the terms are not synonymous.


When discussing civil law, one should keep in mind the conceptual difference between a statute and a codal article. The most pronounced features of civil systems are their legal codes, with brief legal texts that typically avoid factually specific scenarios.The short articles in a civil law code deal in generalities and stand in contrast with statutory systems, which are often very long and very detailed.
