Transcripts - The French Revolution - Economic Reforms and the Legal System

  • 1. All the deputies believed in laissez faire. In November 1789 it was announced that church property would be sold to benefit the state. In October 1790 internal tariffs were abolished , so a national market was created for the first time.
  • 2. Overall, the peasants paid less and since exemptions had been removed , a more just system had been created. However poverty remained.
  • 3. There were no free trade which meant that there was state regulations, trolls and price controls. •The estates of the realm (First, Second and Third estates) was abolished and replaced with equality. •Work was given to you for your skills and not purchased. •The third estate felt the king disregarded relief for the poor as a duty of the state.
  • 4. Their aims were to get rid of any organisations which had special privileges and restrictions regarding employment. It was also to stabilize Germany’s economy by ending unfair taxes on the less privilege and abolishing the estates of the realm, this gives everyone a chance . To limit the kings power
  • 5. Getting rid of the estates and the assembly enabled more equality. The economy benefited from free trade. There were more price controls.
  • 6. There was simply not enough money available to deal with such an appalling problem, therefore nothing was done. It concluded that nearly two million people could support themselves only by begging. However, not all reforms changed for the better. The church had provided what little assistance the poor had received but it could no longer do so when its land was sold and it lost its main source of income.
  • 7. Some of the features of the new system were: The justice’s main task was to persuade different parties to come to an agreement, her could also judge minor cases such as trespass. In every canton there was a going to be a justice of peace which will deal with cases previously handled by seigniorial courts. A criminal court would be found in each department, trials would be held in public before a jury. The idea of having a jury was taken form English laws. The lettres de cachet was replaced by a uniform system with a justice of the piece in which canton and a criminal court with trial by jury in each department.
  • 8. The system didn't’t have a fair way of judging crimes. Lettres de cachet was present meaning the King had unlimited power. There were no elected judges by active citizens. This never ensured that all judges were well qualified and accountable. What are the aims: A new system was put in place simply to limit the kings power. The idea of having a jury that represents justice and peace was taken from English laws. In what ways were they an improvement: The penal code was made humane: torture and mutilation were abolished. A new more efficient method of execution was introduce (The Guillotine). It was seen as more civilised.
