TURKISH LAW AND LAW FIRMS
Turkish Legal System
Turkish law and law firms: The Islamic law used in the Ottoman period was abandoned by the law reform in the Republican period and European laws were quoted in all branches of law. With the great enactments made in the Republican period, Turkish law was completely incorporated into the civil law system. In our law, there is a distinction between private law and public law. In our law, the principle of separation of powers is valid. In other words, Turkish law is derived from German, Swiss and Italian legal systems.
