Overview

Introduction to German Law provides an introduction to the most important areas of German law for foreign readers, be they practitioners, scholars or students. It is thirteen years since the appearance of the successful second edition of this convenient English-language introduction to the law of Germany. This new edition covers the substantial changes and innovations that have occurred during that period, encompassing the pervasive impacts of European Union law and globalization, significantly increased activity of the German legislature in every area addressed in this volume, and numerous decisions which added important changes to the legal landscape in Germany.

What’s in this book:

With fifteen lucid chapters written by academic experts in their respective fields of law, as well as detailed bibliographies, this is the ideal starting point for research whenever a question of German law must be answered. The authors clearly explain the legal concepts, customs and rules arising from such basic elements as the following:

  • characteristic problems of German legal unity;
  • principles and practices of constitutional law;
  • administrative law and procedure;
  • the German Commercial Code;
  • formation and conduct of corporations and partnerships;
  • contracts;
  • tort liability;
  • property rights;
  • family law;
  • succession and inheritance;
  • labor and employment;
  • issues of private international law;
  • courts and civil procedure; and
  • the penal code and criminal procedure.

This edition provides an authoritative description of all issues likely to emerge in the course of normal application of German law in any context and presents an overview of the basic concepts and rules shaping German law.

How this will help you:

With no other competing book on the market, this edition will be welcomed by practitioners and academics with an interest in the legal system of Germany. This will be a unique publication as a starting point for more in-depth research on the German law covering all major legal disciplines.
