The legal framework of Sri Lanka is complex and a mixture of laws ranging from Rome, England, Holland, South India and Old Ceylon. The religious and colonial history of the nation, traced from 1505 to 1948, is the factor responsible for this rich legislative inheritance.
The Sri Lankan judicial system has the Supreme Court as the apex court of the nation followed by the Court of Appeal, High Court, District Courts, Magistrates' Courts and Primary Courts.
