Quick Reference


A complete written formulation of a body of law, (e.g. the Code Napoléon in France). A code of English law does not exist, but a few specialized topics have been dealt with in this way by means of a codifying statute (e.g. the Sale of Goods Act 1893, re-enacted with modifications by the Sale of Goods Act 1979).
