 United States Constitution - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Constitution of the United States is the supreme law of the United States of America and is the oldest codified written national constitution still in force.
The U.S. Constitution styles itself the "supreme law of the land." Courts have interpreted this phrase to mean that when laws (including state constitutions) that have been passed by state legislatures, or by the (national) U.S. Congress, are found to conflict with the federal constitution, these laws are null and have no effect.
The Constitution of The United States has also served as a model for the constitutions of numerous other nations, including the second oldest codified constitution, the May Constitution of Poland, which was written in 1791.

Obviously if society's codified law attempts to counter the values of the dominate religion, the seeds for disrespect of the codified law are laid and in time the secular government will be overthrown at the ballot box or by force.
Obviously laws that have special provisions that favor the rich or well connected are not fair, but just as unfair is a convoluted legal process which favors those who can afford high-priced counselors to guide them through the process while citizens of limited means struggle to obtain justice.
If law changes frequently the citizen will find himself spending precious time reading and rereading the law in order to determine the current state of the law rather than pursuing his occupation and living his life.

 Constitution
Codified constitutions, unlike uncodified constitutions are the not the product of an "evolution" of laws and conventions over centuries, they are usually the product of dramatic political change, such as a revolution.

 Kashrut - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The basic laws of kashrut are in the Torah's Book of Leviticus, with their details set down in the oral law (the Mishnah and the Talmud) and codified by the Shulkhan Arukh and later rabbinical authorities.
Many varied reasons have been offered for these laws, ranging from philosophical and ritualistic, to practical and hygenic; see below for examples and explanations.
There is also the suggestion of a practical aspect to some of the laws of Kashrut; for instance, the pig would not be a wise choice of domestic animal for a nation which was, at the time, a nomadic desert tribe.

 Deno Geanakoplos - Prologue: the two worlds of Christendom - Administration, Political Theory, Law and Diplomacy
And it is the Roman law, codified by the Byzantine Emperor Justinian and transmitted via Italy to the West(52), which is perhaps Byzantium's chief practical legacy to the modern world.
In the Byzantine East where it became the official or semi-official sailor's code and 'admiralty law', it offered practical, time-tested regulations for the handling of collision cases between ships and for such 'proto-capitalist' problems as the relation of the owner of a ship to the cargo owner in the event the cargo was lost.
For while the West was steeped in Germanic, barbaric law with its primitive ordeals and trials by battle, the Greek East was enjoying the benefits of Roman law, which had been leavened by the ideals of Stoicism and other philosophies on the basis of the long experience of the East.

 Customary international law - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
For example, laws of war were long a matter of customary law before they were codified in the Geneva Conventions and other tractates.
Customary international law can therefore not be declared by a majority of States for their own purposes; it can be discerned only through actual widespread practice.
In other words, customary international law must be derived from a clear consensus among states, as exhibited both by widespread conduct and a discernible sense of obligation.

 HLS Library: French Legal Research
In accordance with the civil law tradition, much greater emphasis in the French legal system is placed on codified law, the many codes, rather than on case law and precedent, as in common law jurisdictions.
As with research in common law countries, looking at the legislative process and the resulting legislation is also important, particularly for pending legislation or for constructing a legislative history.
A basic understanding of the French Constitution, the supreme law, and its provisions is a sound first step when starting research on French law.

 French Employment Law: Collective Bargaining Agreements
In addition to the relative constraints, at least from the perspective of the employer, of the Code du Travail (the French Codified collection of Employment Law provisions) there are often also additional, and perhaps equally constraining, provisions set out in Collective Bargaining Agreements, known in French as "Conventions Collectives de Travail".
Collective Bargaining Agreements may be applicable nationally, throughout the whole of French territory, or sometimes only at a very localised level, (thus constituting a potential pitfall for employers and their external advisors who may come from outside the particular area).
However, the Conventions Collectives de Travail are in many cases binding upon employers who took no part in any collective bargaining nor were members of any employers' representative grouping which was party to the negotiations.

October 27, 2004 3:59 AM The Law of Jante (Janteloven) was codified by the Danish-born novelist Aksel Sandemose while he was living in Norway.
Although I've been in Scandinavia a while, and have felt and suspected the influence of such a Law, I only just heard about the Law of Jante's formulation itself by way of the materialist, who is currently posting fascinating accounts of his anthropology fieldwork in the Arctic north of Norway.
The Law comprises ten 'commandments', and describes an unspoken code of conformity that Sandemose felt as a stifling inhibitive influence in the town where he grew up.
