As soon as he had acquired consular power, Bonaparte signed an order on 24th thermidor an viii appointing a four-member commission to study previous work and draft a civil code. Two northern jurists familiar with French customary law: tronchet and bigot de preameneu, and two lawyers of the noon, specialists in Roman law: malleville and portalis who presented the project in a preliminary speech that remained famous. Quickly established the project was ready in four months. In accordance with the draft constitution and the observations of the courts of cassation and dappel were studied by the State Council or the first Bonaparte consul took part in the deliberations.
It is certain that by his energy he has greatly activated the work of lawyers. He also surprised the most experienced technicians with his judicious remarks. The role of the second consul, cambaceres, eminent jurist author of the three previous and unsuccessful attempts at codification, must be noted.
Presented to the purified courts, the draft was passed with some speed: 36 laws were passed and then united into a single body under the name of the \"civil code of the French\" by the law of 30 ventôse an xii (21 March 1804). The drafters of the code also retained the achievements of the bourgeois revolution from 1789 to 1791 by rejecting the extreme laws passed between 1792 and 1795, \"vain sophistry denied by levies.\" While the plan of the civil code has been the subject of some criticism, the style is remarkable, precise and stripped down. In his mind the civil code is \"Napoleonic\", settling all the issues of interest to the individual and the family: birth, marriage, divorce, sharing, estates deaths, restoring in its entirety the cohesion of the legitimate family, dismantled by the revolutionary laws of mountaineering, and the authority of the father and husband, heads of family. \"bourgeois\" civil code also mentions property as an inviolable and sacred right with the secret desire to protect the purchasers of national property, but also to be able to arrange the right of property through the intervention of the law or regulation.
Another tribute of the Napoleonic legislator to the individual freedom of man, the official recognition of the autonomy of freedom in the drafting of contracts. The civil code is revolutionary in that it enshrines legality before the law, freedom of conscience and freedom of work, the secularism of the state. A real compromise between the ancient customs of the regime, Roman law and revolutionary law, the civil code of the French of 1804 (which became and titled from 1807 to 1814 code Napoleon in the French empire) is the \"central monument where modern jurist is constantly brought back\". Maintained without major changes, except the abolition of divorce, until the 1880s, the civil code has since undergone multiple repâtages to take account of the profound changes in society but it has not yet been affected by the general structure.A testimony of the value of the civil code is given by the influence it exercised abroad or the Napoleonic conquests had \"exported\" it to the countries occupied by the great army: in the Rhineland it was maintained until the end of the 19th century; in Belgium and Luxembourg, it is still largely in force; civil law in many countries in Holland, Germany, Switzerland, Italy, etc. Was impregnated by the civil code of the French edited for the first time in 1804 by the will of the first bonaparte consul. The civil code or napoleon code is, according to the very formula of the emperor a saint-helene, one of the \"granite masses\" forever anchoring the new social order of revolution and the empire in French society.
