Understanding Civil Law:

Civil law in Egypt encompasses a broad spectrum of legal matters, including contracts, property rights, torts, family law, and inheritance. It is rooted in both statutory legislation and customary law, offering a comprehensive framework for resolving disputes and upholding justice.

Key Principles and Sources of Civil Law:

  1. Egyptian Civil Code (Law No. 131 of 1948): The Egyptian Civil Code serves as the cornerstone of civil law in Egypt, providing regulations on various aspects of civil relationships, such as contracts, property, obligations, and personal status. It outlines the rights and duties of individuals and entities in civil transactions, ensuring fairness and equity.
  2. Property Rights and Real Estate Law: Property rights are protected under Egyptian civil law, with regulations governing ownership, transfer, and use of real estate. The Law on Real Estate Registration and Ownership (Law No. 114 of 1946) establishes procedures for property registration and safeguards against unlawful dispossession.
  3. Contracts and Obligations: Contracts play a vital role in civil transactions, and their formation, validity, and enforcement are governed by Egyptian civil law. The Civil Code prescribes rules for contract formation, performance, and remedies in case of breach, promoting transparency and accountability in business dealings.
