Summary/Abstract: Introduction of the domestic judiciary system was one of the marks of the Modern Age in Serbia. From the time they were set up, Serbian courts predominantly applied customary law. This was unchanged until enactment of the Serbian Civil Code (1844). However, at the times prior to the first codification, some of the courts’ decisions on the matter of whether it was possible for a woman to inherit land, differ immensely from the imperatives of customary law. The author examines potential reasons for such departure, and searches for the rules the courts applied instead of the rules of customary law.
