[Romain, Dic. of Legal and Commercial terms]

See also the following, written by a Swiss lawyer:
Law affecting the private sector or private law lies within the lawmaking competence of the Confederation and encompasses primarily civil law and the law of obligations. Civil law, which encompasses the law of persons (natural and juridical), family law (including husband-wife and parent-child relationships), and estate and property law (moveable and immoveable property), was codified in 1907 at the federal level by the Swiss Civil Code. The law of obligations encompasses the law of contracts, unjust enrichment (quasi contracts), torts, partnerships, corporations and negotiable instruments. It was codified in the Federal Code of Obligations in 1881, passed in 1911, and materially amended in 1936. The law relating to corporations is presently being revised. These laws are issued in German, French and Italian, but unofficial English translations are available.

Swiss Code of Obligations or swiss law of obligations


Explanation:
Obligationenrecht
droit des obligations, law of obligations
(http://siufsispc10.unifr.ch/futura_ge/c_group_general.htm?gr...



Example:
The continental position seems to be a different one. Extensive codification of private law puts the contract under «law of obligations» and purports to regulate both in principle and in detail the legal relationship between the actors of a contract scenario under a Roman-inspired philosophy based on the concept that «substantial law» on sales of goods, transportation, rendering of services exists before the actual contract, thus establishing a need for dualistic balancing the actual contract commitment with the law on the matter in which the contract «intervenes». The Roman/German-law inspired «Obligationsrecht» seems to demonstrate this very clearly: The BGB and HGB codifications contain many rules and principles applicable to the «object» defined as a sales relationship (§§ 433 et seq on «Kauf/Tausch», §§ 535 et seq on «Miete», §§ 581 et seq on «Pacht», §§ 598 et seq on «Leihe» etc).

Swiss code of responsabilities


Explanation:
You can translate Obligationsrecht with statute-book of responsabilities or law of responsabilities as well...
I think here the word code might be a better one though...
