The Legal System of Vaud

The exhibition gives an overview of the historical legal system in Vaud. Moudon still has an original copy of the first law book that codified common law (1577). This code has also been in force after 1536 and the occupation by Bern. Together with other documents, such as the charter of 1285 from the time of the Dukes of Savoy, this code is the starting point of the exhibition space, which for the occasion has been transformed into a courtroom. Illustrations and sound recordings of concrete cases illustrate the various facets of the legal system of the time.
