  • Code of criminal procedure
  • Commercial code
  • Consumer code
  • Environmental code
  • Insurance code
  • Intellectual property code
  • Monetary and financial code
  • Penal code

But,  you can now find at Legifrance links to the codes and other sources of French laws in English translation, such as France’s Constitution, laws, and decrees.  For more information, check “Translations of French legal texts:  contents and updating“.  Legifrance also has added links to other language translations of French laws such as Arabic, Chinese, German, Italian, and Spanish.  Legifrance is the  French government’s free public access to law portal.  Besides Legifrance,  you can use  sources such as Reynolds & Flores Foreign Law Guide (University of Chicago subscription database) and the Law Library of Congress’ Translation of National Legislation into English for locating French law (and the laws of other countries) in English translation.
