Abstract: 
Political environment often provokes and influences changes in the legal system without forcing them. Late Bronze Age Emar is a case in point. As shown by the documents from Emar, especially real estate sales, The Hittites did not intervene in civil law, but their mere presence and social changes that followed were sufficient for such changes to occur. Not only it forced the existent customary law to adjust, it also inspired the creation of a whole new set of customary rules, parallel to those already in use.
