themes: 10 years of the Civil Law

The Hungarian Civil Code was adopted 10 years ago. The Code builds strongly on tradition, but where necessary it has chosen the path of renewal and innovation. In Hungary, several events are taking place to evaluate the experience of the application of the Civil Code.

On the occasion of the anniversary of the introduction of the Hungarian Civil Code, the Hungarian Academy of Sciences, the Central European Academy and the Ferenc Mádl Institute of Comparative Law are organising an international conference entitled “Codification of Civil Law: Assessment, Reforms, Options” on 18-19 May 2023, to which you are cordially invited.

The conference will have a specific theme, aiming at reviewing the current state of private law codification, the reforms of the last decades, the current challenges and the planned reforms in some European countries.

Kinga Ilyés’ review of the conference was published in Polgári Jog online 2023/11-12.
