German term or phrase: BGB1 I 2002/42, 2277
This is from a footnote from a book on stem cells and is referring to a law on stem cells from 2002. I know BGB is Civil Code but is there an English abbreviation and how do I incorporate all the numbers afterwards as I am not sure of their meaning of whether they need clarification in English.
Thanks

Explanation:
This should read "BGBl" instead of "BGB1" (this error might be due to poor character recognition by a scanning/OCR software). I'd keep the German designation and abbreviation (i.e. the original reference) and add the English equivalent in brackets or as a footnote.
