Abstract

After the 1990 declaration of independence, the 1922 Constitution of Latvia was reinstated. Things did not go very differently as regards the legislative discipline of the judiciary, since the rules contained in the law on the judiciary of 1992 largely reflect the provisions of the homologous law of 1918. The main innovation was represented by the creation, in 1996, of the Constitutional Court, with the necessary constitutional and legislative changes. The continuity of the state was therefore accompanied by the continuity of the judiciary, in force of the 1922 Constitution. With regard to the circulation of legal models, and in particular of formants, after the end of the Soviet era Latvia’s judicial system returned to being part of the Roman-Germanic sub-family of continental civil law. This is also confirmed by the creation of the Constitutional Court, which exercises the centralized control of constitutionality.
