Civil Rights Law


Civil law in Nepal refers to the legal system that governs private disputes between individuals, entities, or organizations. It encompasses a wide range of areas, including family law, property law, contract law, and tort law. In Nepal, civil law is primarily based on statutory laws, codes, and regulations. The Civil Code and the Muluki Ain (General Code) form the core of civil law in the country. These laws outline the rights and obligations of individuals, rules for property ownership and transfer, laws related to marriage, divorce, and inheritance, and regulations for entering into contracts and resolving disputes arising from civil matters. The objective of civil law in Nepal is to ensure fair and just resolution of private conflicts and to provide remedies to those who have suffered harm or have been wronged in civil matters.
