Latvian folklore materials are justifiably considered monuments of language, but they are also monuments of legal rights. Classical Latvian folklore materials provide us with the oldest information about folk law and are a kind of mirror that reflects the people’s legal thought and customs. From the very large body of Latvian folklore material, we must separate out those units that could be considered sources of folk law and can therefore be called legal folklore.
