Turkish Law had become a part of the civil law legal system after the reception of the Turkish Civil Code and Turkish Code of Obligations in 1926. The New Turkish Civil Code adopted in 2002 also followed the civil law tradition. Being a part of the curriculum following the establishment of law faculties in Turkey, the Roman Law course is the symbol of Turkish Legal Reform in Turkish legal education. Roman Law is a living field of law as it is the basis of the concepts, institutions, rules, and principles of the private law rules in force.
