[utilizzata a partire dal pubblicato 2000]

"This is the translated text of a number of notations of the DoGi classification system. It reflects the structure of the Italian law and by no means is a comparison between civil and common law families' concepts. Only main entries have been translated into English as a vehicular language, to allow foreign users to identify the broad categories of the Italian law. Where no functional equivalents have been found, entries have not been translated. This is a work in progress and it will be updated on a continuing basis."
