As Jura singulorum ( lat. Iura = rights singularis ( Adv .) = Single) which are subjective rights referred accruing to a single person ( individual rights ). They are to be distinguished from the Jura consortii ( Latin consors, -rtis = partner, companion, consortio, -ium = community), whose bearer is a majority of persons ( group rights ).
In his textbook on bankruptcy law from 1891 , for example, Josef Kohler differentiates between the rights of the individual debtor (jura singulorum) and those of the community of creditors (jura consortii).
The German Federal Act of June 8, 1815 states in Article 7 on the majority ratios in the decision-making process in the Federal Assembly:
"Where it comes down to the adoption or amendment of the basic laws, organic federal institutions, in jura singulorum or religious matters, a resolution cannot be passed by majority vote either in the narrow assembly or in plenary."
With jura singulorum the family contracts and constitution of the federal states were meant.
