A critical analysis of Ethiopian Civil Code: in light of the core features of Continental European Codification


This dissertation examines the core features of codification and applies them to the Ethiopian civil code in order to critically analyze whether that code complies with the core features of continental European codification or not. The author describes the development of the system of law in Ethiopia - explaining how Ethiopia became one of Africa’s states highly influenced by the model of continental European codification, particularly with the introduction during the regime of Emperor Haile Sellasie (between 1957 and 1965) of a group of highly complex codes – Civil code, Civil Procedure code, Penal code, Criminal Procedure code, Commercial code and Maritime code – giving Ethiopia one of the most modern legal systems in the World.
