Abstract

How do the characteristic norms of civil, criminal and family law combine with the ethical-moral and religious norms of the Kanun of Lekë Dukagjini. The subjective aspect which makes them binding and the differentiation with customs based on today’s juridical doctrine. Why did the Kanun’s norms make up the legal system of the period? The origin of sanctions and how they started to be incorporated into the customary law of Northern Albania. The role of the Catholic Church on the canonical norms and their application by using instruments which were provided by customary law.
