The Study Group on a European Civil Code is a network of academics, from across the EU, conducting comparative law research in private law in the various legal jurisdictions of the Member States.

Our aim is to produce a codified set of Principles of European Law for the law of obligations and core aspects of the law of property. The published principles will be complete with commentary and comparative notes.

These web pages provide information about who we are, what we are seeking to achieve, how we work and how we are presenting our results. Current versions of our work-in-progress (draft principles) can be downloaded from this site.
