    actually our civil code was adopted NOT from France but from Switzerland. The civil procedural code from Neuchatelois civil procedural code. The one adopted from France is the administrative law and siystem.

    Just to correct a little mistake. Turkish Civil Law was not excerpted from France, it was excerpted from Switzerland. The old Turkish Civil Code and Code of Obligations were the mere translations of Schweizerisches Zivilgesetzbuch (Swiss Civil Code) which is the newest original civil code in Europe written by Eugen Huber. In 2000s, those codes were restored by Turkish legislator, but they are still mostly same as Swiss Codes. Turkish Administrative Law was excerpted from France though.
