English to German translations [PRO] Law/Patents
English term or phrase:black letter law
black letter law, defined as
the principles of law which are generally known and free from doubt or dispute.
Is there a German phrase?
Explanation: Well.....actually I have no book here present, since I'm moving. But what you want is something called "Treu und Glauben" in German law. It should be & 430 BGB........maybe one before or less...........
It just means the principles of law.........the principles at all.........if there should ever be a failure in contracts you can always referr to this and you have to..........
no homepage just educated in the laws......
