Summary

The term ‘legal transplants’ is usually taken to refer to laws made by the legislature of one country (the ‘enacting country’) which are then either applied or extended by that legislature to be in force in a second country, or which are adopted by the legislature of the second country (the ‘receiving country’) to be in force there. These transplanted laws, sometimes referred to as ‘introduced laws’, might be constituted by a whole Act or just a part or even a single section of it. The term is also broad enough to cover the transplant of whole legal systems, as sometimes happened as a consequence of colonisation.
