scotland is classed as a civil law jurisdiction in its non criminal side of the law. civil law systems are the result of roman and napoleonic law. france and romania are two im aware of beside scotland. civil law can slso have other meanings depending on the context and i for one find this confusing.

I'm in Greece.
Here's a short description of the origins of the Greek legal system.

Greek Law is a typical European civil law (with a few differences from the other European legal systems), substantially influenced by the German legal tradition. The origins of Modern Greek Law go back to Ancient Greek Law which was the precursor and the intellectual source of Roman Law of the classical period (ius greco-romanum). After the conquest of Greece by Rome, Roman law was officially introduced to Greece but many Greek laws continued to be in effect. During the Byzantine period, Greek customs and the remnants of ancient law influenced the codification of Justinian. The legislation and codification of subsequent emperors, who were of Greek origin, was increasingly novel. From the beginning of the 15th century to 1821, Greece was part of the Ottoman Empire. After the 1821 War of Independence, the modern Greek state was created and the "Laws of our Byzantine Emperors" were reintroduced. These laws remained in effect (with many amendments by modern legislation) until the introduction of the various codes (Commercial Code-1828, Civil Code-1940, Criminal Code-1833a-1951b, Code of Civil Procedure-1835a-1968b, Code of Criminal Procedure-1834a-1951b, etc.).
