Rafał Mańko, ‘European Private Law – in Pursuit of Unity’

The aim of the paper is to inquire whether a European Civil Code would be an optimal means of achieving legal unity within the sphere of private law in Europe. An analysis of arguments for an against a European Civil Code, raised within the ongoing debate, leads to the conclusion that a codification would not be the optimal solution at this stage. Instead, alternative methods of fostering legal unity should be favored, such as the creation of a truly European private law scholarship which would allow to re-create a common conceptual framework and legal grammar.
