Congo-Brazzaville is not to be confused with its much larger neighbor, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, or Congo-Kinshasa. A former French colony, Congo-Brazzaville has a legal system substantively based on French civil law and Congolese customary laws. The formal sources of law in the Congo are the Constitution, legislation, international law, customary laws, judicial precedents, and publications by academic scholars" - home page. This article discusses these sources of law, government organization and institutions, the judiciary, and research resources, with online links as available.
