Written by Erika Finn

Sweden is, together with the Nordic countries, considered to be a distinctive group within the Roman-Germanic law family. Swedish law is predominately based on statutes but Swedish case law is also an important part of the legal sources. Civil litigation in Sweden includes features and principles found in both common and civil law jurisdictions.

The rules that govern civil procedure are found in the Swedish Code of Judicial Procedure (Sw. Rättegångsbalken SFS 1942:740).
