Paraguay’s legal system

The legal system in Paraguay is based on the civil law system. It follows the codified legal system and is largely based on the Napoleonic Code. Paraguay has a civil law system, which means that laws are created by the legislative branch and interpreted by the judiciary. The Supreme Court of Paraguay is the highest court in the country and has the power to interpret laws, settle disputes between parties, and review the constitutionality of laws. Paraguay also has a system of lower courts, including appellate courts and regional courts.

The legal system in Paraguay is based on the Constitution of 1992, which established three branches of government: the executive, the legislative, and the judicial. The Constitution also guarantees a number of basic rights, such as the right to life and liberty, freedom of speech, freedom of assembly, and the right to a fair trial.

Paraguay has also adopted a number of international conventions and treaties, including the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child, the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights, and the American Convention on Human Rights.
