The word participates also in the legal term “corpus legis”, which means “a collection of laws”. It is used to detail particular branch of legislation applicable within a jurisdiction. For example, “corpus juris civilis” is the collection of Civil Laws. The term “corpus legis” differs than “corpus juris”, which details the whole law of a country or jurisdiction (i.e. not just a branch of it).
The word relates also to the legal term “corpus juris gentium”, applicable in the International Law, where refers to the whole package of international legislature, recognized by the countries in their international relations.
