French law is based in some respects on Roman law and is codified. That means that, unlike in the U.S. or England, precedent is relatively unimportant. It's the codified 'rule-book' that really counts. The *basis* of French law dates from the Napoleonic period and is often referred to as the "Code Napoleon" though some of it wasn't fully collated till 1816.
