China, Hong Kong and Macau: legal resources: Macau

Text on topic

Macau and MSAR

Macau became a Portuguese colony in 1849. Its legal system thereafter was influenced by the civil law tradition.

China resumed sovereignty of Macau in 1999 with the undertaking that there would be "One Country, Two Systems" until 2049.

The LawBod does not have printed resources for the law of Macau.
