Roman-German legal system, and has the supreme legal force. In accordance with the article 4 of
the Constitution of Kazakhstan, the Law in the Republic is made of the norms of the
Constitution, laws which conform to the Constitution, other normative legal acts

The normative legal acts of the lower level cannot contradict the normative legal acts of the
higher level. Upon occurrence of contradictions between norms of the normative acts of
different level, norms of act of higher level shall have priority. Upon occurrence of
contradictions between norms of normative legal acts of the same level, norms introduced
later have the priority.
International treaties ratified by Kazakhstan have priority over its laws and are applied
directly, unless international treaty specifies its application requires issuance of a law. Thus,
recognized principles and provisions of international law are an element of the legal
framework of the Republic of Kazakhstan, to which all legal subjects may appeal.

Legal system of Kazakhstan
The legal system of the Republic of Kazakhstan, along with legal systems of Italy, France,
Germany, Austria and other countries, belongs to the Roman-German (continental) legal system.
As opposed to the Anglo-Saxon legal system (England, the USA), where judicial precedents are
the main legal sources, Roman-German legal system has a single hierarchically structured
system of enacted law sources.
