24. Hello, and welcome to the thread about "banning" religious law


First of all, perhaps you might consider your comment against the backdrop of the general notions of "banning religious laws". Yes, indeed, if "religious law" is banned, then you aren't going to find it in the commercial code of the hypothetical state in question, since the entire point of "banning religious law" is NOT to have such definitions in the statutory code.

Secondly, courts consider the meaning of terms not defined by statute all of the time. For that purpose, the courts will look to industry practices or ordinary and usual customs by which such terms are defined.
