Lex scripta

“Lex scripta” is a Latin term that denotes “written law” in English. It refers to legal principles and laws that are explicitly written down or codified, as opposed to “lex non scripta,” which means “unwritten law” and refers to customary or common law that is not formally documented but is based on tradition and precedent. “Lex scripta” includes statutes, regulations, constitutions, and other legal documents that are formally enacted and documented, making them a recognized part of a country’s legal system.
