Description After the establishment of the Protectorate of Bohemia and Moravia, a dual law was implemented at the territory of Bohemia and Moravia - Protectorate law (autonomous) and German law (imperial). Its application was usually based on the citizenship of the subjects of the legal relations. Along with the introduction of legal dualism, German judiciary was also established as well as the whole German occupation administrative apparatus led by the Reich Protector. During the whole existence of the Protectorate, German posts kept intervening into the autonomous law, therefore the often proclaimed „autonomy“ was gradually fading away. In the contribution, there are also mentioned the collections of publications in which provisions of the imperial law, as well as the autonomous law were published.
