Description Reichskammergericht (Imperial Chamber Court) was founded in 1495 within the frame of so called Maxmilian’s reforms. That is one of the most important acts regarding the relationship of Roman and German law, although the main aim of the reforms, i. e. centralization of the Holy Roman Empire, was not reached. Unlike in Italy, where ius commune was applied only if the statutory laws were in conflict or inapplicable, due to the Reichskammergericht was Gemeines Recht in Germany applied primarily before law of particular lands. As a result, there is a mutual influence of Roman law and the laws of particular German lands.
