Summary/Abstract: One of the issues that the newly established Austro-Hungarian authorities had to deal with after the occupation of Bosnia and Herzegovina was its legal order. Despite the reformist intentions, the replacement of the Ottoman right by the Austro-Hungarian right could not be carried out at once. In this paper the author will try to answer the questions as to how the Austro-Hungarian authorities treated the current Ottoman legal order and if Bosnia and Herzegovina could influence the formation of its own legal system? Ultimately, these answers should project a picture of what was the law in Bosnia and Herzegovina like during the Austro-Hungarian rule.
