Works on the Codiﬁcation of the Property Civil Law in the Years 1950–52
Languages of publication
This article attempts to answer the question of how works on the codiﬁcation of civil law proceeded, following the political upheaval of 1948. The literature indicates that the work was interrupted and that another project of the Civil Code was not published until 1954. Codiﬁcation eﬀorts were indeed broken, but in September 1950 the Presidium of the Government adopted a signiﬁcant resolution requiring the Minister of Justice to prepare a draft of the Civil Code in just 11 months. The author – on the basis of archival documents – is trying to reconstruct the course of this work and ﬁll gaps in the existing literature. It turns out that the Ministry of Justice accomplished the resolution, even though the set time limit may have seemed unreal. By the end of August 1951 the project of the Civil Code with its reasons was ﬁnished. However, in view of the advanced work on a new constitution, the project was suspended and legislative work has not been continued.
