 William Tetley, Mixed jurisdictions: common law vs civil law (codified and uncodified) (Part I)
Modern Egyptian law is therefore an intriguing mixed legal system, blending civilian rules fashioned, in style, structure and content, on the model of the French Civil Code of 1804, with the law of Islam and, in family law areas (such as marriage, divorce, filiation and alimentary obligations), with a variety of religiously-founded personal laws.
Consequentially, civil law systems are "closed", in the sense that every possible situation is governed by a limited number of general principles,[135] while common law systems are "open", in the sense that new rules may be created or imported for new facts.
The long-term vitality of two legal systems in a mixed jurisdiction is greatly assisted, and may in fact be dependent upon, the official recognition of two languages, one of which is particularly associated with each legal system in question.
