The Justinian Code

The Justinian Code is a code of law that Justinian made up. The Justinian Code is made up of three laws, The Natural Law, the Law of Nations, and the Civil Law. "The law of nature is that law which nature teaches to all animals. For this law does not belong exclusively to the human race, but belongs to all animals, whether of the earth, the air, or the water. Hence comes the union of the male and female, which we term matrimony; hence the procreation and bringing up of children. We see, indeed, that all the other animals besides men are considered as having knowledge of this law,” quotes the first Natural law. The Law of Nations, "The law which natural reason appoints for all mankind obtains equally among all nations, because all nations make use of it,” is the second one. Last but not least, the third one which is, "The law which a people makes for its own government belongs exclusively to that state and is called the civil law, as being the law of the particular state."
