Mediation and arbitration have been part of the traditional Romanian justice system for centuries. The introduction of the Civil Code in 1864, however, slowly eliminated amicable conflict resolution practices, in favor of litigation in the newly established courts of law. The Civil Code followed the European model of the time. The previous Law of the Land, which provided for mediation and arbitration, faded into memory.
