Sources of the Law and Legal Similarities
The guiding source of the law is the constitution of 1849 which was updated extensively in 1953. The legal system is based on the civil law system and the judicial review of various legislative acts. Denmark accepts compulsory ICJ jurisdiction, with reservations. Denmark is a member of the European Union (EU), so the country's national law needs to comply with the Community legislation.
