Problemy unifikacji prawa prywatnego w Unii Europejskiej w świetle Europejskiego Kodeksu Cywilnego
Unification of Private Law in the European Union in the light of the European Civil Code
Languages of publication
The purpose of this article is to show some doubts concerning the unification of private law in the European Union. The reference point for the discussion is European Civil Code. Particular attention is paid to the problems arising around legislative works including lack of common terminology, identifying the subject and scope of regulations or methodology of studies that were made. Considerations are crowned by the conclusion that, although there are serious doubts as to competence of the European Union in scope of making of European Civil Code and lack of political will from member states, these are not impossible to overcome problems and the major hurdle is made by the differences between the continental law system and the common law.
