Abstract:     
The Article presents twenty-one theses involving the negative influences, in the view of the author, that the French Revolution has had on Latin American legal systems since the time of their independence. The article asserts that many of the chaotic consequences that plague Latin American legal systems in the eyes of common law observers were avoided in England, since England “steadfastly steered its traditional course,” that is, England did not have an event equivalent to the French Revolution.
