A judgement from the Family Division in the High Court of Justice in London mentions a report by two members of the Institute of European and Comparative private law as a " lengthy, lucid and learned report " and reproduce some parts to argument the judgement.
 
 "24. Within the papers is a lengthy, lucid and learned report on Catalan law by Prof Dr Miquel Martin-Casals and Dr Jordi Ribot of the University of Girona. They explain that the applicable rules are to be found in the State Act No. 40 of 1960 on the Compilation of the Special Civil Law of Catalonia. The matrimonial property regime established by the Compilation is the separation of property although this is "balanced" by pre-nuptial agreements. The Compilation was amended by State Act No. 8 of 1993 which among other things introduced "correctives into the default matrimonial property regime to prevent possible situations of inequality at the moment of its dissolution".
25. As to these correctives the authors give a lengthy and very interesting critique, which I do not apologise for reproducing fully "
