or regulations and the judicial decisions.
-Decrees with the effect of law
-Written laws and regulations are only one, albeit important, source of law.
- On some instances, they are inadequate or entirely silent on a matter.
- If the legal issue is new, and there is no existing law, lawyers, judges and scholars must find other sources to provide guidance and answers.
-This other sources include customary law and the writings of eminent legal scholars.
-Customary law is by definition unwritten law.
-Customary law had particular importance in older legal systems where traditional practices served more as the foundation of law than did written law.
-The Turkish Constitution provides that international treaties duly put into effect are of equal status to laws(statutes).
-However, no claim of unconstitutionality of an international treaty can be heard by the Constitutional Court.
